In the 10MWT, the speed of walking comfortably and the maximum walking speed are measured over a distance of 10 meters. If necessary, it is allowed to use a walking aid / orthoses, but the patient must be able to walk without assistance from third parties. With the help of this test, statements can be made about the physical ability to walk, walking speed and endurance.
