The relationship between motor tests and dynamic postural stability parameters
Vrubelová, Lucie ; Vomáčková, Helena (advisor) ; Pánek, David (referee)
Title: The relationship between motor tests and dynamic postural stability parameters Objectives: The aim of this dissertation is to verify the relationship between motor performance and dynamic postural stability parameters in young individuals in the healthy population. To find out in addition whether there exists a significant relationship between motor tests and dynamic postural stability parameters, as well as to verify the differences between males and females within this relationship. Methods: This is a quantitative correlation study investigating the possible relationship between motor tests and dynamic postural stability parameters in young healthy individuals. The Smart EquiTest device from Neurocom was used to measure dynamic postural stability. The following tests were used for these measurements: Limits of Stability (LOS), Sensory Organisation Test (SOT), Motor Control Test (MTC), Adaptation Test (ADT), Weight Bearing/Squat (WBS), Unilateral stance (US) and Rhythmic Weight Shift (RWS). Motor performance was measured using 2 batteries of tests: UNIFIT 6-60 and EUROFIT for adults. In total, 24 healthy volunteers (9 males and 15 females) aged 21-29 years were deliberately enrolled for this study. Each volunteer undertook 8 motor performance tests, anthropometric measurements and 7 tests...

Šalbabová, Anna ; Pánek, David (advisor) ; Vomáčková, Helena (referee)
Author: Anna Šalbabová Title: Influence of acrobatic sports on dynamic postrual stability Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate an influence of acrobatic sports on dynamic postural stability with greater focus on vestibular system and reaction time of the subjects and to compare those qualities with non-acrobatic subjects who have no history of acrobatic training. Methods: Assessments were performed on NeuroCom Smart Equi Test device, which is located in laboratory of kinesiology at the UK FTVS. There were 20 subjects divided into 2 groups 10 subject each. One group made of 10 acrobatic athletes, the second group of 10 non- acrobatic subjects with no history of acrobatic training. The age of all subjects ranges from 20 to 34 years. For the testing of dynamic postural stability were used Sensory Organization Test (SOT), Motor Control Test (MCT), Head Shake - Sensory Organization Test (HS-SOT). For assessment of vestibulo-ocular reflex was used Dynamic Visual Acuity Test (DVAT), which cannot be performed without Perception Time Test (PPT). Results: The results have shown significantly better reaction times of acrobatic group in MCT and better results of acrobatic group in Head Shake - SOT in half of the performed tests. SOT and DVAT have shown no significant data. Conclusion: This study...

Case report of patient after surgery of the lumbar spine
Marková, Zuzana ; Vomáčková, Helena (advisor) ; Biskup, Šimon (referee)
Author: Zuzana Marková Title of bachelor's thesis: Physiotherapy Case Study of a Patient after Lumbar Spine Surgery Objectives: The aim of this bachelor thesis is to summarize theoretical knowledge of diagnosis of spondylosis with radiculopathy. Further, this knowledge will be practically used while working with my patient, whose case study was elaborated in the practical part of my thesis. Methods: To compose the theoretical part of the thesis, a literar research was done. The practical work with my patient consisted of taking medical history, kinesiological examination and therapy based on the results of the examination. The metods chosen for the therapy are: The Vojta Method, the sensorimotor stimulation by Janda and Vávrová, breathing exercises, basic fitness exercises and gait training. The therapy was finished by control kinesiological examination. Result: After the series of therapy, the patient's condition was better. His stability of gait improved and he was able to walk for a longer distance continually, from 50 metres at the beggining to 200 metres at the end of the therapies. Also, the differences in circuits of the lower extremities were smaller, the range of movement was higher and the muscles were stronger in some areas. Conclusion: I had the opportunity to perform all the...

Petrocheilos, Stavros ; Nováková, Tereza (advisor) ; Vomáčková, Helena (referee)
Title: Case study of physiotherapy treatment of a patient after total knee replacement surgery. Thesis aim: Thesis is divided into two parts, the first part is theoretical and has aim to show an overview of anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics of the knee joint and to show general information about the osteoarthritis and the patient's surgery. The second part is the case study where aim is to show the examinations and treatments that were provided to the patient and analyse the results. Clinical findings: The patient was a 71 years old male with diagnosis of total knee replacement surgery, performed 7 days ago from the time we met. The patient had limited ROM in the operated leg into flexion and extension and the area around the knee was swollen and warm. Also, he had some weakness on the muscles of the operated leg. Procedures: All the procedures that used were based on my knowledge acquired from Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport. These were post isometric relaxation, joint mobilisation, strength and length tests and strengthening exercises based on my knowledge. Result: After 7 days of therapies the patient's operated leg had physiological mobility into flexion and extension, the muscles gained strength and oedema was reduced but not completely. Conclusion:...

Regarding the intervention types both Radial, and Focused ESWT with low, medium, and high intensities and the arthroscopic interventions were the main types of...
Influence of acute sleep deprivation on human postural stability
Klocová, Kateřina ; Nováková, Tereza (advisor) ; Vomáčková, Helena (referee)
Title: Influence of acute sleep deprivation on human postural stability Aim: This diploma thesis is aimed to objectively investigate the influence of acute sleep deprivation on human postural stability using dynamic computerized posturography. Methodology of thesis: 7 young and healthy women (n = 7), mean age 24 (± 0,77) were enrolled into this pilot study. These subjects were picked up on the basis of a preliminary questionnaire survey using the Czech validated version of MEQ questionnaire to meet the same (neutral) chronotype condition. During 24 h of continuous wakefulness all participants had to adhere to special regimen to avoid undesirable distortion of the results. Postural stability was measured before and after the therapeutic intervention using NeuroCom SMART EquiTest System. The obtained data were processed with use of Neurocom Balance Manager Software. Paired t-test was used for statistical analysis, to evaluate clinical significance of the intervention Cohen's d was used. Results: The results confirm influence of 24-h sleep deprivation on human postural stability. After this time decreased sensory organization while maitaining balance was observed. However this fact has not been statistically significant. In case of automatic postural reactions, divergent data were obtained depending...
