Exercise test is an integral part of evaluation of the patients with different cardiopulmonary diseases. One such test, 6MWT (6 minutes walk test), is well established in clinical practice and research. However, it is not popular for some inherent logistic issues related to the performance of the test. So, we have innovated a substitute of 6MWT which is claimed to be a more cardiopulmonary stress specific and is easy to perform (possible even in the consultation room itself). The test is named 2CT (2 chair test) and is accepted for publication.
