The 6-min walk test (6MWT) is a widely used field walking test. This study reports the normative reference values (NRV) of distance walked during 6MWT (6MWD) in healthy Singaporeans (aged 21–80) and updates the 6MWD reference equations. This information may facilitate the interpretation of the 6MWD in clinical populations.
