The Modified Shuttle Walk Test (MSWT)

Modified Shuttle Walk Test CD

The modified shuttle walk test is an extension of the original 12 level Shuttle Walk Test initially developed to assess patients with COPD. 

The instructions for the MSWT are the same as for the original test, except that there are 3 additional levels, (usually used with younger or fitter patients for example with cystic fibrosis)
