Testing of dyspraxia in young cross-country skiers and in children and adolescents developing versatility
Novotná, Eliška ; Kraus, Josef (advisor) ; Zounková, Irena (referee)
In the theoretical part, the diploma thesis summarizes the findings of developmental dyspraxia or rather developmental coordination disorder and deals with the issue of physical activities in this disorder. One section of the theoretical part are the characteristics of the activities, that probands from the practical part of this thesis regularly do, and their possible use in intervention. The practical part deals with an evaluation of motor skills in young cross-country skiers and in children from movement versatility section of Sokol union. We used the Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2 for evaluation. The next aim is to determine whether the level of motor skills correlates with the level of attention, that we tested using Test od attention d2. The last aim is to determine whether the level of motor skills is different for boys and girls engaged in the same sport. No difference in level of motor skills between cross-country skiers and children from Sokol union was found. However, statistically significant difference between performance in the single components of the test MABC-2 was revealed, this difference was found in the component of balance. The correlation between the level of motor skills and attention was not proved. Neither the difference between the level of motor skills of...

Helebrantová, Soňa ; Kraus, Josef (advisor) ; Zounková, Irena (referee)
Diploma thesis "Diagnosis of developmental dyspraxia in children and adolescents with a focus on the preference of the upper or lower extremities in sport" summarizes all available information about etiology, diagnosis and therapy of developmental dyspraxia in the theoretical part. The practical part deals with the use of the diagnostic test Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2, which is designed to identify motor disorders in children. Developmental dyspraxia is very often associated with attention problems so the Test of Attention d2 was used. Difficulty with attention has been confirmed in individuals with impaired physical abilities. There was no significant difference in the overall motor skills between handball players and soccer players. The evaluation of particular components showed significantly better results for girls playing handball in the field of manual dexterity.
Changes of the fine and gross motor functions at patients with cerebral palsy after therapy by Nintendo Wii and Reflex Locomotion according Vojta
Píšťková, Marie ; Medunová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Kraus, Josef (referee)
Aim: The aim of this study is to assess benefits of therapy by Vojta method and by using the active videogame Nintendo Wii. The manual dexterity and gross motor function were evaluated. Methodology: The study was attended by 14 children aged 6 - 18 years. They were divided into two equal groups. The Vojta method was applied for the first group and exercising with Nintendo Wii for the second group. Each therapy took 30 days. After a 6 months break the two groups were changed. During those 6 months no targeted physiotherapy was done. The manual dexterity and gross motor functions were measured before and after the therapy and 8 weeks after finishing the therapy. The Box and Block test and the Nine Hole Peg test were used for assessment of manual dexterity and GMFM was used for testing of gross motor function. The children completed the PACES questionnaire after each of the interventions. Results: Statistics showed a significant change in the manual dexterity over the time when the Box and Block test was used. A difference between the two types of therapy has not been proven. Results of the Nine Hole Peg test were not statistically significant, neither in time nor when comparing the therapies. GMFM was not statistically significant either. The PACES did not show any difference between the therapies....

Bibliographic identification BENÁKOVÁ, Lucie. Evaluation of Developmental Dyspraxia in Children with Obesity. Prague: Charles University, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Department of Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, 2013. 88 p. Supervisor MUDr. Josef Kraus, CSc. Abstract: The aim of the study was to evaluate the level of motor skills in children with obesity using a diagnostic test Movement Assessment Battery for Children, second edition. We also wanted to determine whether there is a linear correlation between motor skills and attention in obese children. Attention was assessed using the d2 test of attention. We tested 32 children (13 girls and 19 boys), mean age 13.3 years. We found that the relative frequency of motor skill deficits in obese children were significantly different from the relative frequency of motor skill deficits in the general population. We found statistically significant difference between each motor skills in boys group assessed by MABC-2 test. Furthermore, we confirmed the existence of a statistically significant linear correlation between the level of motor skills in obese boys and percentile of Body Mass Index. In obese girls, this correlation was not demonstrated. We have not shown any significant linear correlation between levels of motor skills and attention. Keywords: motor...

The statistically significant correlation between the level of motor skills and attention was also confirmed....
Electeophysiological response of the central nervous system to prolonged visual stimulation in migraine
Bednář, Michal ; Kubová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Kraus, Josef (referee) ; Kadaňka, Zdeněk (referee)
Electrophysiological response of the central nervous system to prolonged visual stimulation in migraine Migraine is a paroxysmal disorder with complex symptoms (prodromal stage (aura), headache phase, post-paroxysmal phase) by nature it is primarily a dysfunction of the central nervous system with the absence of structural changes discernible on routine neuroradiological imaging. A part of the so far elusive pathophysiology of migraine, is the abnormal central processing of sensory information that has both clinical (in visual perception i.e. photophobia) as well as electrophysiological correlates. In the last three decades, the development of fundamental research in the neurophysiology of central neurogenic dysfunction in migraines (where visual evoked potentials VEP play a pivotal role), has been accompanied by numerous debates on the contradictory findings suggestive of cortical hyperexcitability or hypoexcitability. In order to unify the concept, it would be appropriate to refer to migraineurs as having cortical hyper-responsibility, which implies an increased sensitivity to facilitatory or inhibitory stimuli. The discrepancies in electrophysiology findings gradually grew in number and a significance towards a migraine specific electrophysiological abnormality emerged - a deficit in decrement amplitude...

Hlaváčová, Veronika ; Zounková, Irena (advisor) ; Kraus, Josef (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with very low birth weight children in relation to the occurrence of motor problems. The theoretical part provides an overview of knowledge about the low birth children's problems, early postnatal problems and problems from childhood to adulthood in the physical, psychological and pedagogic field. The main part of the theoretical information concerns the occurrence of motor disorders, particularly the developmental dyspraxia and motor disorders about very low birth children. The aim of the practical part of the work was to determine whether low birth weight infants have higher incidence of developmental dyspraxia in comparison with term infants. The research group consisted of 25 low birth weight children, they were examined by Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2 (MABC-2). Children were examinate for posture and postural functions compiled using our protocol. The another aim of the practical part of the work was to determine whether low birht weight children have higher incidence of physical activity in steps by week in comparison with normal birth weight infants. There was significant difference in the incidence of motor disorders between the research group and the control group of 73 normal birth weight children and standard population and the group of late...
Evaluation of Developmental Dyspraxia in Children and Adolescents in Relation with Handedness, and in Children and Adolescents with Learning Disabilities
Jínová, Anna ; Kraus, Josef (advisor) ; Zounková, Irena (referee)
10 Annotation This diploma thesis deals with relations between developmental coordination disorder (or developmental dyspraxia) and laterality and handedness. In the theoretical part this work summarizes actual knowledge about the origin and the development of laterality and handedness and describes possibilities how to examine it. It also deals with knowledge about developmental coordination disorder, its characteristic, etiology, prevalence and diagnostic possibilities. The aim of the practical part was to evaluate motor difficulties in children with right and left handedness and to compare differencies. The Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2 was used for that evaluation. Motor skills in 64 children (30 left-handed and 34 right-handed) were evaluated. We haven't found any difference between those groups of children, their results were very balanced. We have also tested the motor skills in children with crossed eye-hand laterality, any significant difference hasn't been found in comparison with standard population. The group of children with learning disabilities has been also evaluated, we have found statisticaly significant difference between their motor skills and motor skills of standard population.
