The original Borg CR10 Scale ® is used to measure the perception of intensity of any experience. Individual is asked to rate the intensity of the breathlessness, before, during and after excercise;The Borg RPE scale is a 15 point scale (6 to 20) to assess subjective experiences during physical stress. This subjective load scale can help estimate load phenomena, such as the degree of exertion, exercise load and fatigue. The scale ranges from 6 (no effort) to 20 (absolute maximum effort) and provides useful information about the relative load, as experienced by the patient himself
