Levels and Relations Between Foot and Body Postures in Primary School Pupils
The monitored group consisted of 12 female pupils of the eighth year of primary school in B. Bystrica (age 13.42 ± 0.3 years, body height 162.6 ± 2.3 cm, body weight 49.7 ± 2.1 kg and body mass index 18.8 ± 0.9). In terms of prevention, we focused on finding the levels and relations between the foot and body postures by using standardized methods for physical and sport education (Foot posture - Plantography and method of Index and Chippaux-Šmírak; Body Posture - Method of Klein and Thomas modified by Mayer and Dynamic spine function (Tests of Schober and Stibor). By applying various physical programs in the lessons of physical and sport education, the levels of foot and body postures improve after 4 weeks (Bendíková, Marko, Rozim, & Martinský, 2019). The listed study is the part of research project: VEGA 1/0519/19 “Physical activity as prevention of health of school population in Slovakia”.
