  1. All comparisons were made with Paired t-tests. SD: Standard deviation; N: Sample size; 10MWT: 10-Meter Walk Test; 6MWT: 6-Minute Walk Test. aOne participant did not perform the 10MWT at follow-up because of back pain. !One participant could not sit unsupported, another did not have a measure for the end of training because of an unrelated injury
