I was very glad to see this article, as the toe-raises hadn't been validated yet. The response is essentially the same for toe-raises and treadmill, given the same level of disease.

Check the Flownet archives for discussions of the relative merits.

Does anyone recall what issue of the JVU the article on using "toe ups" for exercise was in? I seem to recall that it was at least 3-4 years ago.

Thanks
