Novotná, Klára ; Vaněk, Miroslav (advisor) ; Wohlmuth Markupová, Jana (referee)
The thesis is based on 13 oral history interviews the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the health care sector (specifically rehabilitation medicine and physical medicine). Narrators are health care professionals who are part of multidisciplinary rehabilitation care in different positions and can therefore reflect the pandemic from different perspectives. In addition to the impact on the professional life, the thesis also describe the subjectively perceived impact on the narrators' personal lives. The interviews were recorded in early 2022, after 2 years of living with the pandemic, when strict restrictions were still in place. The thesis provides testimonies of the lived experience of the pandemic among health workers behind the so-called 'frontline', who have not received as much attention in the media. It also compares the experiences of the narrators in the context of Czech realities and compares them with the results of similar international studies on pandemics among health professionals.

Diploma thesis entitled "Analysis of Gait data utilizing the Rehawalk treadmill in post- stroke patients," is focused on investigating the gait parameters of individuals who have suffered a stroke and subsequently undergone analysis on the Zebris Rehawalk treadmill. This study specifically examines temporal and spatial parameters, including step length, anteroposterior Center of Pressure (COP) position, and lateral COP symmetry. The theoretical section of the thesis provides an in-depth discussion on stroke causes, clinical effects, and rehabilitation interventions. Furthermore, it provides an overview of the Zebris Rehawalk treadmill, employed for both analytical and therapeutic purposes, along with a delineation of its specifications. The central objective of this research was to determine how the aforementioned gait parameters evolve over time among post-stroke patients. The resulting values indicate the effectiveness of post-stroke gait therapy, which is an important component of independence and autonomy. The study includes participants who have experienced a stroke, the experimental cohort (n=24; females=5, males=19), as well as a control group, healthy individuals (n=47; females=32, males=15).
