Next, the ISWT phase speed was matched with the SD1 values.
Table 5 shows the effect size (ES) calculation for the ISWT, [HRV.
It was observed that regardless of the way the load was distributed, the subjects significantly improved in ISWT, [HRV.
Regardless of the way the load was distributed in the groups, the subjects were expected to present positive adaptations in the HRV-related variables and in the ISWT due to the herein proposed aerobic training.
Results from the three measurement time points for the Manual Muscle Testing, Paediatric Balance Scale, the HiMat, 6MWT and ISWT are shown in Table 1.

In view of this, we extended the 10-m course of the 10-m ISWT to create a 15-m incremental shuttle walk and run test (15-m ISWRT).
Subjects had to walk or run at the prompting of a sound played at regular intervals from the 10-m ISWT CD, reaching the guide pole at the opposite side before the next sound was heard.
The ESWT was developed by Revill et al (1999) and uses the ISWT
to establish the walking pace.
