El Ali, Zaher ; Mahrová, Andrea (advisor) ; Heller, Jan (referee)
Title Exercise programmes for individuals with ESRD treated with dialysis and their effect for quality of life. Objective: To evaluate an effect of regular 6 months intradialytic exercise programmes at functional state and quality of life in patients with ESRD. Methods: 15 patients with ESRD on haemodialysis participated in exercise programme during haemodialysis. Senior Fitness Test (SFT), dynamometry of hands and questionnaire tool SF-36 were used to evaluate physical function and quality of life of the research group before and after 6 month exercise period. Results: Results of output motoric tests and questionnaire tool after exercise intervention were conform with majority of cases or better than the results of input tests. Improvement was recorded for patients, that did exercises regularly. Only in one test we observed statisticaly significant change- in case of women, increased their test performance in 2-minute step test (p<0,04). In case of men there were no statistical significant difference. Statisticaly significance of changes between input and output tests, were evaluated by small number of patients in group. In majority of the results before and after exercise intervention were no statistical significant difference. Summary: Regular exercise programmes realized during hemodialysis can...

Comparison of proportional biological age and theoretical skeletal age on the example of swimmers
Peřinka, Filip ; Musálek, Martin (advisor) ; Heller, Jan (referee)
and key words Problem definition: Assessment of the biological age is possible to obtain by several methods, both simple and more sophisticated. Results will surely not always comport. Currently radiography of distal epiphysis antebrachia and ossa manus (ossa carpi , ossa metacarpi, phalanges) is considered to be the most exact method, however for the reason of unavailability of X-ray pictures, we require for assessment of the bone age, this method is used exceptionally mainly for its invasiveness. Theoretical estimation of the bone age might be a kind of alternative method when assessed from derived coefficients of regression equations, made on a base of conventional radiographic method. In the contrast of that, age rating by biological proportionality is considered a substitution of the bone age criteria. So, the problem is the mutual diversity and difference of the two methods which are relatively most exact. The Aim: In the thesis, we deal with comparison of the biological proportional age and theoretical bone age within swimming youth, in age range 11-15 years altogether. The main goal is to learn the difference of the biological maturity by using two methods determining the biological age coming out from anthropological measurement of individuals. Methods of resolution: Assessment of the...
