In this issue, Wettings et al present the first study to investigate maximal and supramaximal cardiorespiratory testing in adults with mild to moderate intellectual disability. Clift et al present original research to determine the reliability of practicing physical therapists in performing ankle-brachial index (ABI) measurements in an older adult population. Dekerlegand et al provided an approach - using clinically available measures - to assist clinicians in determining when it may be useful in practice to assess inspiratory muscle strength in their adult patient with cystic fibrosis. Gugliotti et al report on a pilot study in an emerging area of consideration that really connects (pun intended) the connections of the neurovascular and neuromuscular anatomical networks as the consider the associations between arterial stiffness, hamstring flexibility and neurodynamics.​

In this episode, we interview Dr. Thessa Hilgenkamp PhD one of the authors for the paper “Feasibility of Supramaximal Verification of Peak Oxygen Uptake of a Graded Maximal Treadmill Test in Adults With Intellectual Disability” published in the October 2017 issue of CPTJ. We also discuss the intersectional relationship between intellectual disability, physical activity, and cardiovascular disease.
