BOSU EXERCISES FOR IMPROVEMENT OF BALANCE TO CHILDREN WITH DOWN SYNDROM
The purpose of this papers is to improve the recovery and compensation of psihomotric status to children with Down syndrome. We applied in lesson of physical education a program specifically designed and tailored to the aerobics made by Bosu apparatus. The research was conducted over six months, two days per week, for 15 minutes. The subjects were 6 children with Down syndrome. Comparison of the results obtained at the initial coordination of static test (media ± standard deviation are x ± = ± 4,502 4,333) and the results obtained when testing the final static coordination (x ± s = 7.5 ± 5,925) highlight that 3.2 sec. difference is statistically significant, p < 0,0005. In terms of general dynamic coordination results from initial testing and final testing, there was a difference of 1,6 seconds, was statistically significant, p<0,0005. Aerobics exercises executed at Bosu ball brought significant improvement.
