Patients referred to the vascularsurgeon with complaints of claudication for their first time, will be asked to participate with the study, with respect toward the in- and exclusion criteria.
Other: supervised treadmill exercise program
Supervised treadmill therapy consists of a walking exercise on a treadmill under supervision of a physiotherapist, 2-3 times a week. This program is combined with individual walking every other day and the total duration of the program is 6 months. Guided by the painfree walking distance, every month the angle and/or speed of the treadmill will increase. A standardized protocol for this type of therapy is already in use by many physiotherapists in Limburg (Willigendael, 2005).
