Clinical field tests as predictors of cardiorespiratory fitness and cardiometabolic risk in Psoriatic Arthritis.
Projet soutenu de Barbara Neerinckx : This project will study the potential of low cost, objective and highly generalisable clinical field tests, six minute walk and hand grip strength test, in predicting maximal cardiorespiratory fitness in patients with psoriatic artritis (PsA). Moreover, we will evaluate the relationship between the fitness outcomes and disease activity, cardiometabolic risk and quality of life in PsA-patients. This study will contribute to the optimalisation of current cardiometabolic risk assessment in PsA.
