Anyone looking to begin a structured exercise routine should first complete a functional exercise assessment (FXT), but it is especially important for patients entering a cardiopulmonary rehab program. The exercise assessment is the cornerstone for prescribing exercise that is safe, effective, and efficient. The FXT should be valid, reliable, and easily incorporated into the daily schedule/routine of a cardiopulmonary rehab.
