6 minute walk test

Any body out there have to do the 6 minute walk test when you go to see your neurologist or doctor or physio?
If so how do you get on?

Re: 6 minute walk test

I had to do this 6 years ago to get my powerchair. I did NOT do well, thus why I got my chair! I think she said I was only able to walk 400(???) feet before needing to stop and rest (this was with my cane). I had to stop the test before I finished because I knew if I continued, my legs would give out.

My neurologists don't make me do this test at this point.
