Role of the Timed Up and Go Test in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease


The Timed Up and Go (TUG) test is a measure of functional mobility. It is a short test and requires minimal space. We determined the potential role of TUG test as a measure of function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and compared with controls. Furthermore, we wanted to determine the association and reliability of TUG test time to fall history.
