Title: Maintaining the positive effects of physical exercise programs for elderly several months after its completion. Aims: The main aim of this thesis is to detect, if the level of physical activity of seniors remain in existence even when the organized exercise program within the study EXODYA ends.

Title: The physical activity of dog-owning persons with a spinal cord injury. Objective: The aim of this thesis is to find out the level of physical activity of persons with a spinal-cord injury who own a dog. This work employs both subjective and objective methods of analysis. A secondary objective is to find out whether dog-owning individuals with a spinal cord injury get enough daily physical activity as recommended by the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults with Spinal Injury. Method: The research was conducted using a combined qualitative-quantitative method. The sample comprised of five men aged 29-66 years with spinal cord injury (4 quadriplegic and 1 paraplegic). The physical activity was subjectively measured by a semi-structured interview "PARA-SCI." Objective measurement of the physical activity was conducted using an accelerometer ActiGraph GT3X+. Each participant's physical activity was measured for three three days. Results: The average objective physical activity of the participants was 2166.3 minutes, while the average PARA-SCI result was 1558.8 minutes. The difference between these two results is not statistically significant. The participants fulfilled the levels of physical activity as prescribed by the aforementioned guidelines.

The influence of loneliness on hypertension in the elderly
Vajdíková, Markéta ; Šteffl, Michal (advisor) ; Daďová, Klára (referee)
Title: The influence of loneliness on hypertension in the elderly Objectives: The main aim was to estimate the influence of loneliness on hypertension in people over 50 years old. Methods: This Bachelor thesis was constructed as a cross-sectional study. Data were obtained from the 6th wave of the international project Survey of Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). Generalized linear models for binominal variables were used to estimate the influence of loneliness on hypertension. Results: Data from 32,431 women and 26,245 men were included in the analyses. The average age was 67.3 ± 9.6. Almost all the regression models showed statistically significant (p˂0.05) influence of loneliness on hypertension, except in males after adjusting for age and the other covariates. The highest influence of loneliness on hypertension was found in females where OR = 1,649 (p ˂0.001). Conclusions: The results of this study showed that loneliness could have a statistically significant influence on hypertension in females over 50 years old. Keywords: hypertension, loneliness feeling, SHARE
Impact of 3months SM system exercise program on the spiral muscle chains in elderly
Poulová, Barbora ; Daďová, Klára (advisor) ; Hráský, Pavel (referee)
Title: Influence of the three month programme called Spiral vertebrae stabilization - SM system on function of the spiral muscle chains of seniors Objectives: Main objective of the thesis is to prove positive influence of group exercise by methodology of spiral vertebrae stabilization - SM system by MUDr. Richard Smisek on functions of movement system of seniors. Methods: Theses is empirically-theoretically based with using of kvaziexperiment research. There was one group of 12 participants, where 7 of them (6 women and 1 man in- between 65-75 years), were involved in three month exercise period. Participants were tested by 5 function tests by Smisek (2015), which they are evaluating function of spiral chains, with use of tailor meter and the protractor. Results: There were no substantial results during the three month intervention in the monitored parameters. The main cause was insufficient attendance, which was for more obvious results very important. It would be more relevant if we were use longer period of exercise - at least half a year. We can establish positive influence only with three participants, which they had at least fifty percent attendance. We came to the conclusion, that other physical activities of our participants also have high influence on our positive results. Keywords: SM...

Vlasáková, Jana ; Daďová, Klára (advisor) ; Malá, Michaela (referee)
Name: Assessment of the "New speaking" method in the treatment of stuttering Objectives: Stuttering is a serious speech disorder where the consequences can significantly handicap individuals. Except the common logopedic care, there are also different alternative methods, including group therapy with the name "New speaking". The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to evaluate the effect of this method from the perspective of two graduates. Methods: The main used method was exploratory (interview). Two subjects (female - 26 years old and male - 19 years old) participated in the case study. The interview consisted of fourteen questions. Results: Based on the analysis of the interviews it is possible to state that the "New Speech" method is working when the rules are followed. Absolvents perceive a subjectively significant improvement of speech with social and psychological consequences. Improvement in the social area can be supported by the fact that subjects are able to speak under all conditions and also that they perceive increase of job possibilities. The psychological improvement was less visible. It is suggested to work on their self-confidence and hardiness. Key words: speech disorder, stuttering, group therapy
