Mandát, Marek ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Pavlová, Ilona (referee)
Title: Fitness training for individuals after spinal lesion Objectives: The aim of the bachelor thesis is to monitor the influence of physical intervention in the form of fitness training on body composition and movement performance of individuals after spinal lesion. Methods: In the framework of a quantitative and qualitative research study, four subjects after the spinal lesion who are participating in the reconditioning stay at the Paraple Center were observed in case studies. Among the selected subjects were three males and one female, three of them with paraplegia and one with tetraplegia in the range C 6 - Th 6. The average subject age was 41.5 years (24 - 74). Except for one individual, all showed moderate overweight and decreased exercise activity in everyday life outside the research. Research methodology consisted of one month intervention in the form of individually adjusted fitness training. In order to set up the intervention and to evaluate the effect, the following methods were used for input and output testing: observation, assessment of body composition using the Bodystat instrument and evaluation of exercise performance by measurements on a rowing and cross- country trainer where the mileage was monitored. Results: All subjects attained a slight improvement in body composition in...

Svobodová, Anna ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Šifta, Petr (referee)
Title: The use of virtual reality in combination with electrostimulation of spinal cord and its influence on individual with incomplete spinal cord injury. Objectives: The main aim of this work is to find out if virtual reality in form of terapheutic videos filmed in the first person perspective and in combination with electrostimulation of spinal-cord has influence on neurological state and subjective perception of young man with spinal-cord injury. Methods: A 25-year-old proband, with incomplete spinal cord lesion syndrome for 10 years, underwent this qualitative research (case study). Proband had been watching ten-minute-long therapeutic videos through VR headset in combination with electrostimulation on average 2-3 times per week over a period of 5 months. In order to record proband's neurological state ASIA Impairment Scale test was used. This test was carried out before, during and after the research. Proband's subjective feelings and pain were evaluated on a point scale: 0-10 and recorded in proband's diary. Results: Proband's sensitivity showed minor improvement. Input score of sensory subscores light touch on ASIA Impairment Scale test were 84 points and output score increased to 86 points. Input score of sensory subscores pin prick were 75 and output score increased to 78 points (of total...

Kerdová, Terezie ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Nováková, Pavlína (referee)
Title: Effects of the therapeutic physical education program on young people with orthopaedic foot defects Objectives: This undergraduate thesis is aimed to test the effect of exercise mainly on hallux valgus and hammertoes of young people with such defects. Methods: It is a qualitative study using the research method of a case study. The effect of the 4-week therapeutic physical education program was tasted on 3 people with orthopaedic foot defects. There were 1 male and 2 female probands aged between 17 and 24 years with orthopaedic foot defects (hallux valgus, hammertoes, high arch). In all three cases, the trouble started approximately at the age of 10. The therapeutic physical education program lasted 28 days for 15 minutes a day and included sensory and motorial exercises. The methods of data collection in the entry and exit examinations were assessment of aspection and palpation, functional tests, and examination on podoscope, which was repeated 2 months after finishing the therapeutic physical education program. Continuous changes were recorded by probands in the diary, including the Visual Analog Scale (VAS). Results: After 28-days of intervention, monitoring by the podoscope showed that the pressure on the front of the foot has been reduced in case of 2 out of the 3 probands. Weight...

Babková, Karolína ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Malá, Michaela (referee)
Title: Effect of therapeutic physical program in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus Objectives: The aim of my work was to examine the effect of 12 weeks therapeutic physical program on distribution of plantar pressure, muscle strength in plantar flexion, ankle range of motion and physical abilitity by patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and diabetic foot syndrome. Methods: It was a quantitative research, randomized controlled trials. It was chosen 10 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and with diabetic foot syndrome. The patients were devided into 2 groups. In each group were four males and one female, aged from 54 to 73 years old. The first group included exercise patients and the second group nonexercise patients. The intervention took place 5 - 7 times a week and contained two types of training units. The first had 11 exercises, the second self mobilization of leg joint and walking. Basic anthropometric figures - height, weight, girth of waist and hipline (tailoring meter,weighing machine), ankle range of motion (goniometer), muscle strenght in plantar flexion (dynamometer), pressure distribution in stand (MobileMat), physical ability (Senior Fitness Test) were measured and compared in two groups after 12 weeks. The results were evaluated statistically in tables. Results: The...

Havlíková, Karolína ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Prajerová, Květa (referee)
Title of the thesis: The influence of exercise on subjective perception of our own body in participants of the Feldenkrais method course Aims of the thesis: The aim of this thesis was to deepen the theoretical knowledge of the Feldenkrais method, the basic anatomy of the cervical spine and the construction of the eye. Furthermore, the aim was to clarify the connection of eye movements and cervical spine, and define cervicoocular reflex, vestibuloocular reflex and whiplash syndrome. Then apply this knowledge and explain how one lesson of the Feldenkrais method affects the subjective perception of our own body, and how it can affect the magnitude of the cervical spine ranges. Method: It is a quantitative, experimental research. In the first part of the research, the questionnaire of own design monitored the effect of one lesson of the Feldenkrais method on the subjective perception of our own body in a group of 56 people aged 24 to 79 years, the lesson took part during a three-day course. In the second part of the research, the effect of one Feldenkrais method focused on the movement of eyes and cervical spine was studied in a group of 20 people aged 19 to 27 years. Data to this section was obtained based on input and output measurements using a measuring tape and a goniometer. In addition, a...

Title: The impact of a guide dogs on the quaity of its owner Goal: The purpose of this bachelor work is to find out how the guide dog ownership can affect its owner. The work is firmly focused on social participation and the activity options according to the ICF legislation, 2001. Methodology: The data collected in this research are classified as qualitative. Furthermore, the information collection was carried out by a self-created questionnaire, provided to fifteen participants. The survey was completed by 25 questions, varied by three categories (open, closed and open-ended).

Mandát, Marek ; Vařeková, Jitka (advisor) ; Prokešová, Eva (referee)
Title: Conductive training in individuals after spinal lesions Objectives: The aim of the bachelor thesis is the positive influence of fitness training plan for people with sleep lesions to improve their physical condition. The secondary aim is to examine the subjective attitudes of probands to the conditional program, according to Feldenkreis's satisfaction questionnaire supplemented with a written probanda assessment. Methods: In the framework of a quantitative and qualitative research, 4 probands were monitored in the form of case studies after a spinal lesion participating in a reconditioning stay at the Paraple Center. The average proband age was 45 years. In probands an initial examination was performed and a monthly training session with an instructor was carried out. To evaluate the effect, the following methods were used: observation, bodystat assessment by Bodystat and assessment of physical fitness on a rowing and cross-country trainer. Results: All proband monitors achieved a slight improvement in bodystat scores evaluated by the Bodystat instrument: decreasing body fat in percent and increasing the proportion of active body mass. These results confirmed physical fitness improvements with measured times on trainers. Conclusion: Monthly fitness training for 4 individuals with spinal...
