Use of supportive measures in pupils with visual impairment
Cvachová, Aneta ; Šumníková, Pavlína (advisor) ; Květoňová, Lea (referee)
This diploma thesis covers the pupils with visual impairment who are school educated through the supportive measures of varying degrees. Firstly, it describes the essential concepts related to the topic. The first chapter introduces visual functions and their most common disorders, plus visual disorders in childhood which can be encountered in education. In following chapters, the definition and classification of terms used in the Catalogue of support measures in the Czech Republic is introduced and defined. The main terms covered are visual impairment and impaired visual perception and the education specifics are described for each groups of pupils according to the severity of visual impairment. This thesis also contains detailed analysis of support areas and each supportive measure designed for pupils in need of support in education due to the visual impairment and impaired visual perception. In the second part of practical study, research goals and questions are defined. From medical and other relevant reports of special pedagogical centre the qualitative research analysis had been conducted. The data were collected from selected primary school pupils who are using varying degrees of supportive measures. In total, it includes insight of seven pupils who are educated with the second, third and...
The role of optical function and its influence to the posture
Terčová, Simona ; Oplatková, Lenka (advisor) ; Veselý, Viktor (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the optical function as one of the multisensory modalities in postural control. The theoretical part concerns the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the visual system and their relationship to postural functions. It also includes a further indefinite weakening of neurophysiological principles, influencing other sensory perceptions and motor manifestations with the visually impaired, who belong to group with reduced postural control. The work describes the examination methods and training options for visual perception and its impact on postural control. These applications are applied in the practical sections in the case report of visually impaired patients, in whom the influence of the individual examination unit on postural function was investigated. For the assessment were used the Rehawalk pressure platform and the clinical test of dynamic postural stability Star-Excoursion Balance Test.
Influence of light touch on postural balance of persons with visual impairment
Součková, Zuzana ; Čakrt, Ondřej (advisor) ; Levínská, Kateřina (referee)
The aim of the diploma thesis is to evaluate the influence of the sensory adaptation on postural balance of persons between 10 - 20 years old. The measurement of postural balance on stabilometric desc without visual control in postural situations in different difficulty with and without light touch. For this study 10 blind probands and 10 probands without visual impairment are tested. We expect that blind ones will show better results in all of tested COP parameters in all postural situations than control group because of sensory adaptation. Keywords postural stability, static balance, visual impairment, blindness, sensory adaptation
Analysis of stroking movements of crawl technique in persons with visual disabilities
Hájíček, Marek ; Jurák, Daniel (advisor) ; Zenáhlík, Aleš (referee)
Title: Analysis of stroking movements of crawl technique in persons with visual disabilities. Complained by: Bc. Marek Hájíček Supervisor: Mgr. Daniel Jurák Ph.D. Objectives: The aim of the study was to determine differencees among swimming technique of visually impaired swimmers and fully health swimmers. Methods: To assess the technique of the crawl swimming method, we used a 50 m swimming test, which we recorded and subsequently evaluated using the SmartPaddles technology and application. Results: Based on the results, we can say that the biggest differences in the technique of VI and fully health swimmers we recorded in the number of strokes per minute, in the total speed and in the execution of the stroke curve with the right and left hand. Fully health swimmer evenly distributed muscle strength between the two arms, while a swimmer with a VI had trouble maintaining muscle strength throughout the stroking movement. We have found that for visually impaired swimmers, it is necessary to devote more time to training and mastering swimming techniques than for healthy swimmers. Keywords Swimming technique, crawl, visual impaired, SmartPaddles.
Design kuchyně pro handicapované
Hrabec, Marek
This bachelor thesis deals with a kitchen design for a purblind and blind person. The theoretical part describes problems, which these people struggle with, including specialized organisations helping visually handicapped people. The thesis covers search for kitchen realised in our area. It continues with elaborate specification of individual parts of a kitchen and with last trends. The practical part describes own solution for a purblind and blind person created for a concrete room. There are specified materials, fitting and technology used for that.
Assistance and Information System for Blind People
Hnilica, David ; Zemčík, Pavel (referee) ; Černocký, Jan (advisor)
Tato práce řeší problém implementace asistenčního systému pro podporu zrakově postižených osob v prostředcích hromadné dopravy. Jelikož se jedná pouze o část většího celku (projektu RAMPE), není v této práci pokryta celá problematika, nýbrž pouze její část. Práce je psána z pohledu vývojáře a softwarového architekta. Zlepšuje architekturu dříve vyvinutého projektu, navrhuje nové metody a techniky a přidává do výsledné aplikace nové funkce. Toto však platí pouze pro příslušnou část - práce nemůže a ani si neklade za cíl změnit nebo navrhnout celý systém. To už bylo provedeno jinými autory v minulosti a tato práce je na těchto předchozích výsledcích postavena.
Blind football
Vondráček, Jiří ; Větrovský, Tomáš (advisor) ; Půlpán, David (referee)
Title of the thesis: Blind football Objectives: The objective of this bachelor's thesis is to apprise the public with sport which is as a phenomenon as football adapted to the possibilities of athletes with visual impairments. It is a sport that is not very popular in any territory of ours, just like all other sports for handicapped people. I would like to familiarize people, so that sports activity can come closer, but also to sports enthusiasts who are interested in basic information about this sports game. Method: The bachelor's thesis is made by the method of review, on the basis of summary from theoretical knowledge and specialized information. Results: Writing rules and all available information that is important to know to practice this sport. Key words: football, sport, visual disability, rules
"White cane, yes. Dictaphone, yes. But everything is already in Apple." The technification of blindness in the symmetrical approach of ethnography
Haspeklová, Sára ; Stöckelová, Tereza (advisor) ; Zandlová, Markéta (referee)
In the thesis I ethnographically study the process of interconnecting and mutual influencing of human and non-human entities in case of the visually impaired persons and the compensation devices based on computer technology. I examine this process, which I call "the technification of blindness", in symmetrical terms. The main theoretical inspiration for the study is the interplay of technology and the health-inconvenienced body and its consequences which are based on the Actor-Network Theory and related material-semiotic tools of social-science research. My aim is to analyse processes which enable/not allow to manage everyday activities to visually impaired persons in the Czech Republic, while they are using computer technologies and their relation with wider processes of accessibility. I trace mutual influencing of human and non-human entities on a specific configuration of visually disabled body with specifically modified personal computer, and with a touch-screen smart-phone. The study shows how the specific form of portable electronic and computer-based devices, which are specially adapted to seeing users, is what excludes blind and visually impaired persons from the interaction with computer technology. Such a cooperation and visual orientation of blind persons is allowed only thanks to...
