Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to examine the relative (ICC) and absolute intertester reliability of the 6-Minutes Walking Test in hip fracture patients (N=50) in an outpatient facility. The data collection is conducted by two physiotherapists, who are blinded to each other. The physiotherapists are randomized so they each are doing an equal number of baseline tests.
