From the left acromion to d left anterior superior iliac spine; 3. However, this approach is different in children with DS, who often show hypotonia, ligamentous laxity and muscle weakness, which are some of the changes affecting the musculoskeletal system thatlead to a delay in motor development and can contribute to a subsequent postural misalignment.

After marking the points, subjects were positioned at their natural posture on pasteboard fixed to the ground 30 cm away from the plumb line and their feet were marked on the paper using a graphite, aiming to take photos with the same support base amplitude and positioning of the feet, thus preventing rotation of the trunk and limbs. In these patients, the sequential measurement of maximal respiratory pressures enables quantification of progression of respiratory muscle weakness Those interested in participating were given the FICF for inclusion in the study, which 41 signed.

Our study, contrary to the aforementioned author, showed that seven-year-olds, the same age as the study, were the ones that presented better motor coordination of the groups. The evolution of the treatment of DS has been undergoing a significant advance. For selection of NPG participants, it was decided to select from the following institutions: Horses were randomized selected for the sessions and showed docile behavior, obedience to the voice, indifference to unknown objects and noises, they leaned against on the ramp for riding, were fond of children and accepted all kinds of harnesses.

Dysfunctions in postural control are often described in children with DS and related to difficulties such o motor coordination, problems with sensory-motor integration or simply as awkward movements, which are thus considered by Polastri and Barela 7 and Webber, Virji -Babul and Lesperance 9 when individuals are slow to adapt to the changing task and conditions of the environment or are less able to make anticipatory postural adjustments.


The protocol method of ANDE-BRASIL is based on promoting physical and psychological gains, requiring participation of the entire body, thus contributing to the development of muscle strength, relaxation, body awareness and improved motor coordination and balance. Dr Langdon Down and ‘mongolism’. Several authors affirm that the horse, used as a kinesiotherapeutic instrument in the care of people with physical disabilities, offers a motor enhancement of body alignment, to control global synergies in addition to providing a static and dynamic balance increase 1516171819 Motor control outcomes following Nintendo Wii use by a child with Down syndrome.

According to a study by Herrero et al. The KTK battery therefore allows two types of analysis of the results: Procedures The sessions and the tests were performed at the Therapeutic Riding Center of APAE, containing roofed area, different textured-floors dirt track, grass, gravel and cementedstalls, saddlery and access ramp for practitioners.

A convenience sample was used, where the researchers previously visited the institutions that worked with individuals with DS, both those who had the Hippotherapy program and those who did not. The effect of hippotherapy on functional outcomes for children with disabilities: All included participants engaged in psychological treatment once a week in the APAE and did not use controlled drug.

The respiratory system in muscular distrophy. Quais os objetivos buscados pela fonoaudiologia na equoterapia?


The effect of therapeutic horseback riding on social functioning in children with autism. How to cite this article. Results and discussion The tests were selected and applied on 41 individuals; however, during analysis of the data, by means of the boxplot, discrepant outlier values of two individuals in the NPG were found, which could have influenced the results of the analysis.

Data statistically analyzed consisted of distance measurements determined previously, comparing the data before and after hippotherapy sessions. Horseback riding therapy produced positive changes in the angular behavior of the ankle and little effect on the knee.

Photographs were obtained with individuals in swimwear, standing erect in the views: The distance between the right acromion and the manubrium demonstrated a better grouping with the distance from the left acromion to the manubrium, suggesting a decrease in kyphosis.


Motricidade Orofacial — como atuam os especialistas. They observed that male children presented better levels of motor coordination than female. The grouping of variables11 and 13 showed the best linkage with a shorter distance after the proposed treatment Figures 3 a and 3 b. Effects of hippotherapy on postural stability, in persons with multiple sclerosis: In the Figure 1it is observed that the median of the MIP variable is the same for both groups, meaning that the halves of the values of the two groups were the same, even though the mean of the PG Today, in the world, every minute, 18 babies arem born with a disability, which means 9.

Speech therapy in hippotherapy

It also shows that for the two variables, the PG has widely dispersed data. As regards the variables MIP and MEP, which represent inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength, respectively, this study shows that the values of both groups and sexes are lower than those sondrome for individuals without disability. The sample was composed of children and adolescents of df sexes, selected by convenience, where a prior visit to the institutions was undertaken to present the project to the [therapy] coordinators and preselect the subjects who could participate in the study, according to the inclusion criteria described above.

It was also possible to compare, within the group that practiced hippotherapy, the difference between boys and girls, and, with the results of the tests, to correlate this difference to age and time practicing hippotherapy.
