similar to this study. They had realized that there was some type of change with claudication distance and exercise rehabilitation, but they had never specifically used a randomized control design. This was what made this specific experiment different from the other previous studies. As I had stated earlier the large objective of performing this study was to see how different exercise programs would affect elderly individuals who had intermittent claudication. For this study they had the participants complete several different tasks. Ranging from intermittent treadmill walking, exercise rehabilitation, walking test to physical activity questionnaires. The large importance was for these researchers to see if there is a possibility of finding a rehabilitation process for elderly’s with intermittent claudication and how to help them with it. The findings within this different study that they collected from their results was that the exercise rehabilitation did really improve the ambulatory function for these elderly adults as well as the peripheral circulation with patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease. So they concluded that these different exercise rehabilitation’s should be considered as a part of a rehab protocol for an elderly individuals with intermittent claudication.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
