Primary outcome [1] 258342 0
The primary outcome is the change in ABI (ratio of blood pressure in the arm to ankle). This outcome will be performed by conducting a between groups comparison of the change in ABI from baseline to follow-up.
Timepoint [1] 258342 0
4 weeks and 3 months following randomization
Secondary outcome [1] 264057 0
The secondary outcome is the pain free walk time. Subjects will be asked to walk at 3km/h on a treadmill at 12 degrees inclination until they develop pain in one or both legs. The test will also be stopped by chest pain or arrhythmia.
