Trial identifier NCT02218905, 13/311


This study is to find relation between number of repetitions the volunteer able to sit and stand in an armless chair and their age, height, weight and gender. The investigators hypothesis there is a moderate relation between anthropometric characteristics and number of situps. This may partially define the ability of functional capacity and quadriceps ability.

Study Design

Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose diagnostic
One minute sit to stand in 40 inches armless chair. Fatigue, breathlessness and failure to maintain tempo will lead to decease the test
sit to stand test
Subjects will be asked to sit to stand in 40 inches chair for 60 seconds.

Primary Outcomes

Number of repetitions of sit ups within 60 seconds
time frame: baseline, 1.5 minutes

Secondary Outcomes

heart rate recovery (in seconds)
time frame: 1 minute
blood pressure (mmHg)
time frame: baseline, 1 minute
saturation (%)
time frame: baseline, 0.5 minute, 1 minute
Heart rate (beats/ min)
time frame: baseline, 0.5 minute, 1 minute

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 30 years up to 80 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Both genders - 30 - 80 years old - PSG staffs, relatives of patients volunteering the test - Willing to give consent for the test Exclusion Criteria: - Chronic cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases - On anticoagulants - Cancer undergoing chemo, radiotherapy - recent orthopaedic ailments (OA, RA, surgeries less than 3 months) - Balance impairments

Additional Information

Official title Phase 0 Study of Reference Values for One Minute Sit to Stand Test in Healthy Indian Population - a Cross Sectional Study
Principal investigator RM PL Ramanathan, MD DM
Description Sit to stand is gaining importance as a functional capacity measurement tool in modern chronic diseases arena. Bu the reference values for normative population is not available. Hence the present study aimed at finding relation between the anthropometric variables (age, height, weight) and number of sit to stand repetitions. The volunteers will be asked to sit to stand in an arm less chair of 40 inches height. The number of repetition will be correlated and regression equations will be sought out relating number of repetitions and anthropometric variables through best fit regression equations
