The study found a statistically significant improvement in exercise capacity, as measured by scores of distance travelled and ability to keep going without rest using incremental and endurance shuttle-walking tests. "This adapted rehabilitation programme for individuals following Covid-19 has demonstrated promising improvements in clinical outcomes," said researcher Sally Singh from the University of Leicester.
