  1. Only four individuals could be trained to walk on the treadmill sufficiently well to take measurements of walking energy expenditure (G02, G05, G06 and G07). For more details see Additional file 2
  2. Indirect calorimetry measurements were not obtained for G03 and G08 because they could not be trained to stand in the chamber
