Comparison of Walking in Water and on Land in People With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the metabolic load during a single session of moderate intensity walking in water compared to walking on land (over-ground) in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who are normal weight and obese, compared with peak exercise metabolic response.

The hypothesis is that the metabolic load of walking at a moderate intensity in water will be greater than walking on land.
