10m Shuttle Test

The 10m multi-stage fitness test is an aerobic fitness test designed for children with cerebral palsy (CP) classified at Level I or Level II on the Gross Motor Function Classification System. The test was described by researchers at the Rehabilitation Centre De Hoogstraat, Utrecht, The Netherlands (Verschuren et al., 2006). This test is a variation of the 20m beep test. There is also a wheelchair version of this test: 10m Wheelchair Shuttle Test for those with CP. See also the similar 10m Incremental Shuttle Walk Test for people with COPD.
