Wearing barefoot shoes from the perspective of physiotherapy and orthopedics
RUDOLFOVÁ, Marcela
My bachelor thesis deals with the wearing barefoot footwear from the point of view of physiotherapy and orthopaedics and its influence on the musculoskeletal system. In the theoretical part of the bachelor thesis I describe the kinesiology of a foot and its deformities, the foot arch, proprioception and the possibilities of foot examination. I also deal with the issue of footwear wearing. The practical part of the thesis consists of a qualitative research, which was carried out on the basis of a detailed survey with about twenty tests. The sample set consisted of twenty-eight probands in two groups - a group of barefoot users and a reference group of people using different kinds of footwear than barefoot. The group of barefoot users consisted of nine women and five men. The reference group consisted of eight men and six women. The goal of the thesis was to map a possible change of the musculoskeletal system after the switching to wearing barefoot footwear, how wearing barefoot footwear can affect the musculoskeletal system and what the pros and cons of wearing barefoot footwear are. According to my research the benefits of wearing barefoot footwear are based on the satisfaction among the probands, on the better work of toes in the walking stereotype as well as in standing, and also on better axis position of toes. The cons, i.e. the negatives of wearing barefoot footwear are their price and walking on hard surfaces. The most significant changes of the musculoskeletal system that I mapped were those in the walking stereotype, namely in the thrust phase of a step, in the position of toes and changes in the tests of balance and body posture. The thesis can serve as educational material for those who consider purchasing barefoot footwear or want to switch to barefoot walking, but also for those who have already been wearing barefoot footwear, those who are interested in it or for physiotherapy students.
The way of coping with stressful situations in students of the Faculty of Health and Social Studies who will provide social work in the future
RUDOLFOVÁ, Marcela
This bachelor thesis deals with the issue of stressful situations, particularly with coping with them and with the responses to them. The aim of the thesis was to map how the students of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, programmes Rehabilitation-psycho-social care of handicapped children, adults and seniors and Social work in public administration respond to a stressful situation and how they cope with it. The text is divided into two parts, a theoretical one and a research one. The theoretical part specifies the terms stress and coping, I deal with the issues of mental strain, its classification, techniques of coping with stressful situations, responses to a stressful situation and further related topics like the impact of stress on the health, mental hygiene, reasonable spending of free time, stress and addictive substances and the burnout syndrome. A qualitative research strategy, the method of questioning and the technique of semi-structured interview was applied to the research. The data was analysed by means of the cluster formation method. The research sample consisted of eighteen students, three students of each year of the above mentioned study programmes. I was trying to find answers to the research questions: How do the social work students respond to a stressful situation? What steps do the future social workers take to cope with a stressful situation? The results show that stomach upset is the most frequent response among the respondents, after that headache, nervousness, fatigue or sweating follow. A chat with a close person is the most frequently used step to coping with a stressful situation. The stressful situations mentioned by the students are linked to their study, not to their future work for the time being, but I suppose that they will apply the "well proven" coping methods in the future as well and they will be able to cope with the stress related to the work of a social worker.
