Abstract

Introduction: Field tests have become an important tool to evaluate the effects of a program of rehabilitation exercises on physical fitness in children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP). These have some important advantages over laboratory tests are usually cheaper, easier to administer and require fewer resources with regard to specialized equipment. Objectives: Analyze and process the data collected concerning the autonomic modulation during the six-minute walking test (6MWT) and controlled speed endurance; and permit test practice learning ergoespirometric test (CPX) specifically applied to cerebral palsy.Relevance of the study: This study is expected to show the importance of field tests on cardiorespiratory assessment, and thus propose a better preparation of more effective protocols for the improvement of the conditioning of children.
