Accuracy of walking metabolic prediction equations using a large diverse data set
Walking metabolic rate prediction equations are commonly used to estimate oxygen consumption, exercise intensity and energy expenditure across a wide range of ages and anthropometrics. Despite their widespread use, independent validations of these equations using metabolic data from a large number of individuals are uncommon. PURPOSE: To assess the accuracy of the commonly used ACSM and Pandolf walking metabolic rate prediction equations, along with two new walking metabolic rate predictions equations developed by Weyand et al. and Browning et al., using data from a large number of adults. ...
