Possibilities of prothetic treatment for skiers with exarticulation of the knee especially for cross-country skiing
Malá, Kateřina ; Hruša, Jan (advisor) ; Gnad, Tomáš (referee)
Thesis title: Possibilities of prothetic treatment for skiers with exarticulation of the knee especially for cross-country skiing Main objectives: I tried to find out the prosthetic possibilities for the people who have the exarticulation in the knee joint and compare the differences between healthy and amputated person. Goals: 1. Try to find out the possibilities for the cross country skiing to people who are having an exarticulation in the knee joint. 2. Watch the cross-country skier with the exarticulation in the knee joint during the activity and find out the differences with healthy person. 3. Devise a solution how to eliminated the shortcomings and try to minimaze these differences. Methods: This thesis is one case study. I used qualitative research methods to write this thesis. I was collecting data to get more information during observation of my experimetee doing recreational sports activities. Then I compared this information with knowledge obtained in the professional literature about cross-country skiing, healthy and amputated cross-country skiers. Results: In this thesis I found out that there is an available prothesis in the Czech Republic which allows the people with exarticulation in the knee joint to cross-country skiing. However there are any limitations in movement that a healthy...
Possibilities of prothetic treatment for skiers with exarticulation of the knee especially for cross-country skiing
Malá, Kateřina ; Hruša, Jan (advisor) ; Gnad, Tomáš (referee)
Thesis title: Possibilities of prothetic treatment for skiers with exarticulation of the knee especially for cross-country skiing Main objectives: We try to find out the prosthetic possibilities for the people who have the exarticulation in the knee joint and compare the differences between healthy and amputated person. Goals: 1. Watch the cross-country skier with the exarticulation in the knee joint during the activity and find out the differences with healthy person. 2. Devise a solution how to eliminated the shortcomings and try to minimaze these differences. Methods: This thesis is empirical-theoretical nature. The methods which we used are comparative analysis and observation with the following description. The observed variables were our thesis proband in comparison with our own expirience about cross-coutry skiing. Results: In our thesis we find out that there is an available prothesis in the Czech Republic which allows the people with exarticulation in the knee joint to cross-country skiing. However there are any limitations in movement that a healthy people do not have. Key words: femoral amputation, the prothesis, C-leg, cross-country skiing with a prothesis, cross-country skiing after amputation
Technique and methodology of skiing with one-sided above knee amputation on two skis
Hruša, Filip ; Hruša, Jan (advisor) ; Matošková, Petra (referee)
Thesis title: Technique and methodology of skiing with one-sided above knee amputation on two skis. Main objectives: Propose a methodical series for beginners with one-sided above knee amputation on two skis. Method: The work is of theoretical-empirical character, this is an explanatory case study applied to three probands, skiers with one-sided above knee amputation. Firstly, a content analysis of publicly available methodical publications will be carried out. Then the observation method with the following description will characterize probands technique by watching video records. Finally, we will propose a methodical series in which we will reflect the observed problems in the technique. Results: We found out in our bachelor thesis, that the same basic mistakes appear in amateur skier beginners, therefore we have proposed a theoretical methodological series that should lead to their elimination. Key words: above knee amputation, prosthetic, transfemoral amputation, prosthetic, skiing of amputees, skiing with prosthetic, ProCarve, C- leg, Genium.
Downhill skiing with exarticulation of the knee joint
Hruša, Filip ; Hruša, Jan (advisor) ; Strnad, Pavel (referee)
Thesis title: Downhill skiing with exarticulation of the knee joint. Main objectives: Evaluate prosthetic options for people with exarticulation in the knee joint for downhill skiing on two skis. Goals: 1) Suggest prosthetic solutions for downhill skiing with exarticulation of the knee joint. 2) On the force measuring plate L.A.S.A.R.-Posture, measure gravity center of skier on proposed prosthetic systems and evaluate substantial features for downhill skiing. Method: The work is empirical-theoretical nature. The methods are comparative analysis and observation with subsequent description. The monitored variables were skiers center of gravity position, and angles of the ankle and the knee joint at the neutral position and the base downhill ski position on the power measuring plate L.A.S.A.R.-Posture. Becouse of complexity and uniqueness of this issue, we chose a case study. Results: In our thesis we verify that there are available prothesis in the Czech Republic, which allows to people with exarticulation of the knee joint, safe skiing on two skis.
