Walk test is a test that often used because walking is a basic activity. There are time-based walk tests and some are based on track length. A 6-minute walk test is a time-based walk test with a distance trevaled as a result. A 6-minute walk test is frequently used as functional clinical capacity trial. This test is performed on a straight track. The length of the track varies from 10-meters to 85-meters. This study examined the reliability and validity of a 6-minute walk test on a 15-meter track. The 15-meter track with markers every 3-meters, 30-centimeters wide to the right and left from the center line. The subject went straight as close to the center line as possible. When the subject arrived at both ends, the subject rotated with the three step method. The study compared the 6-minute walk test on the 15-meter track with three-step rotating method with on Biodex® gait trainer gold-standard. This study involved subjects as many as 123 healthy Indonesians adults (58 men, 65 women), and obtained Cronbach alpha of 0.999 and Pearson correlation value of 0.998. This shows that the results of the 15-meter trajectory test have validity and precision values which are as good as the 6-minute walk test without spinning.
