The primary objective of this study is to establish the utility of the 2-min walk test (2MWT) in patients with neuromuscular disorders based on the correlation between 2-min walk distance (2MWD, the first 2 min of the longer 6-min walk) and the 6-min walk distance (6MWD).
The secondary objective is to compare the 2MWD and 6MWD to motor performance tests including the timed floor- to-stand test, timed ascent and descent of stairs, and the MFM-32.
