This research project aims to investigate the gender-based difference in patients with
peripheral artery disease. To attend this, this study has two specific objectives:
Objective 1: To identify gender-specific barriers towards exercise and physical activity in
patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD).
Objective 2: To evaluate gender-specific differences in functional capacity and
cardiovascular function and regulation in patients with PAD at rest, during and following a
single session of maximal exercise.
