Comparison of senzitivity of the Omron HJ - 720IT pedometer according to the location on the body
Bohdanová, Markéta ; Slabý, Kryštof (advisor) ; Procházka, Michal (referee)
The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of a biaxial piezoelectric pedometer Omron HJ-720IT according to a position it was attached to on a body with a classic spring - levered pedometer Yamax SW-200, which was approved to be valid in previous studies. The Total of 57 probands (39 females and 18 males) participated in the study, which contains 3 parts. In the first part the pedometers were tested in a self - paced walking condition ("slow", "moderate" and "very brisk" walking) on a track of 135 m in length. The second part included four-minute sections of walking on a treadmill under controlled conditions at following speeds: 3.2, 4.8 , 6,4 and 7,5 km.h-1 and slopes: 0 %, 5 % and 10 % and two fifteen-minutes sections at 4km.h-1 with no inclination and 6 km.h-1 with 5 % slope. The third part was aimed to record artifacts while going by bus. At no position at speed 4.8 km.h-1 the 1 % error was exceeded. The highest accuracy was achieved with Omron on a belt of(above) a SIAS. It is also reliable in counting of aerobic steps at this position. While going by bus it counted 3 steps/min at most at all positions. Omron Pedometer HJ-720IT proved validity and reliability at various mounting positions under self-paced and prescribed walking conditions. Keywords: pedometer, Omron, Yamax, physical activity,...
The reflective effect of manipulative therapy on blood pressure.
Martínek, Josef ; Bitnar, Petr (advisor) ; Slabý, Kryštof (referee)
The topic of the thesis is The reflective effect of manipulative therapy on blood pressure. The aim of the thesis is to summarize current knowledge, which talk about the relationship between the ma-nipulative therapy and the changes of blood pressure. One of the purpose of the thesis is to clarify the using of manipulative therapy in the treatment of arterial hypertension. In the thesis another methods of manipulative therapy are discussed to give broad overwiev and to have a posibble to comparison. Powered by TCPDF (
Reliability of visually assessed postural stabilization tests
Voráčová, Helena ; Slabý, Kryštof (advisor) ; Radvanský, Jiří (referee)
Úvod: U většiny funkčních testů, které se používají v rehabilitaci a mezi něž řadíme i testy posturální stabilizace (TPS), není k dispozici zlatý standard ani jiná objektivizační kritéria. V souladu s požadavky Evidence Based Practice/Medicine je tedy žádoucí pokusit se stanovit shodu mezi hodnotiteli a shodu hodnotitele se sebou samým jako první krok v procesu objektivizace. Cíle: Prostřednictvím dvojice zkušených a dvojice nezkušených hodnotitelů stanovit inter- a intra-rater reliabilitu u tří baterií TPS, vypracovat podrobnou popisnou statistiku a porovnat naše výsledky s literaturou. Materiál a metody: Byly vybrány tři baterie aspekčních TPS zaměřených na bederní páteř (Kolář 2006, Luomajoki et al. 2007, Tidstrand a Horneij 2009). Provedení testů bylo nezávisle hodnoceno současně dvěma zkušenými a dvěma nezkušenými hodnotiteli na smíšeném souboru zdravých osob (n = 15, 10 žen, průměrný věk 44,5 ± 11,0 let) a pacientů s vertebrogenním algickým syndromem bederní páteře bez neurologického deficitu a neurochirurgického výkonu na páteři v posledních pěti letech (n = 16, 8 žen, průměrný věk 45,9 ± 13,6 let). Hodnocení testů předcházela jejich formalizace (pozitivita jednotlivých znaků, binární hodnocení celkové pozitivity testu). Ke stanovení reliability jsme použili procentní shodu (a%) a koeficient...
The Value of "Priessnitz Walking" as older adult exercise: issues of safety, adherence to the regimen, and fitness maintenance
Komínová, Olga ; Bitnar, Petr (advisor) ; Slabý, Kryštof (referee)
This diploma thesis presents a new form of outdoor activity called Priessnitz Walking, which means a connection of nordic walking, cooling limbs in a cold water and a yoga breathing exercises. A physiological grounds of each of its parts has been explained in the theoretical part of the thesis as well as its benefits for older people. Next to this, the thesis concerns about a physiology of aging and the importance of regular physical activity in later life. Our clinical experiment investigated an effect of PW during six-week training programe in older women attending Cardio Club Motol. A significant change in cardiorespiratory function and a positive subjective evaluation of the participates has been shown. Besides, we have found Priessnitz walking to be a save kind of endurance training for older people. A long-term adherance, which we also focused on, was not confirmed. Powered by TCPDF (
Comparison of reliability of various types of pedometers for Nordic Walking
Matoušková, Markéta ; Slabý, Kryštof (advisor) ; Káfuňková, Petra (referee)
The gait cycle in walking, the gait cycle in Nordic walking, Nordic walking as a physical activity and pedometer SILVA Pole Mate II (technically) are described in the theoretical part. The aim of this study was to compare of reliability of various types of pedometers for Nordic Walking . We compared these pedometers: pedometer Digiwalker, SILVA Pole Mate II and Omron HJ- 720. We compared the reliability of the pedometers on three surfaces: the grass, asphalt and rubble. The present study included 23 individuals (15 women and 8 men). This experiment was realized in a park, where were these surfaces (grass, asphalt and rubble) side by side. The data were analyzed statistically. The results showed that Silva Polemate was the most accurate pole pedometer, the pedometers on the left pole are more accurate and that the relative deviance was lowest on grass road. These pedometers, worn in the waist, were measured inaccurately (RD of pedometer Digiwalker SW 200 = 92%, RD of pedometer Omron HJ - 720 = 22%). These pedometers are unsuitable to be worn on the pole.
Subsequent changes of anthropometrical parameters after three months physical therapy
Joachimová, Marie ; Radvanský, Jiří (advisor) ; Slabý, Kryštof (referee)
INTRODUCTION: Therapy of obesity is currently based on weight reduction. The recommended strategies are effective for a short period of time but do not have long- term results. A steady rate of regain is observed from 6 months onward, reversion to baseline weight is predicted by 3 - 5.5 years. GOALS: The goal of this study was to evaluate short-term and long-term effects of three months physical therapy on anthropometrical parameters. The next goal was finding predictors of successful and unsuccessful long-term weight maintenance in this study and the literature. METHODS: We recruited 20 overweight or obese women (average BMI 28,6±2,6 kg/m2 ). Four anthropometrical parameters (weight, BMI, waist circumference, hip circumference) were measured at the beginning, end and six months after finishing the program. The differences of parameters were statistically evaluated. Each participant filled in a questionnaire which was focused on potential predictors of successful l or unsuccessful weight maintenance. RESULTS: All anthropometrical parameters were lowered after the program. Six months after the end of the program all the average values of the parameters were increased. These results support findings of other follow-up studies. The influence of the eight selected factors was not proved. Even though...
The impact of ambient temperature on exertion parametres and their dynamics
Bělohlávek, Jiří ; Procházka, Michal (advisor) ; Slabý, Kryštof (referee)
The aim of the work was comparing physiological mechanisms of mainly cardiopulmonary and respiratory system given different temperatures. The outcome will be review article bringing together studies, which are commonly focused just on one temperature extreme, therefore offering complex overview of the issue. The review article will be completed with realization of own experiment. Powered by TCPDF (
