Adap Phys Act Quart. Conclusion Considering the research developed, it can be inferred that the effects of an Hippotherapy program positively influence the global motor coordination in individuals with DS, in both genders with ages between seven and 13 years, when compared to individuals with DS who do not practice Hippotherapy.

Improving gross motor function and postural control with hippotherapy in children with Down syndrome: Effects of Experience and Pratice. Maximal respiratory pressures and voluntary eqoterapia.

In relation to the activities in common to the groups, it was reported based on an anamnesis form, which in the institutions related to each group, the children had physiotherapeutic follow-up, participated in occupational therapies, follow-up with speech therapists, Physical Education classes and besides the pedagogical accompaniment, with psychologist and physician.

They observed that male children presented better levels of motor coordination than female.

Speech therapy in hippotherapy

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. The duration of each horseback riding therapy session was fifty minutes, and the interval between sessions was seven days.

Two horses trained for hippotherapy were used, one of the Arabianbreed and the other Quarter with Persian breed, aged 8 and 9 years and 1. To record KTK test data, a self-administered questionnaire was used and all subjects were evaluated by the same investigator to reduce possible procedural errors among the samples Comparing the data available from the middle of last century and today, the increase in life expectancy of this population is evident 5.


Data normality was checked with the Shapiro-Wilk test and homogeneity of variances with the Bartlett test. Table 1 shows the motor coordination results, through the KTK test, individually eauoterapia the Equoterapis Quotient MQ values of each task involving the test: As regards the variables MIP and MEP, eindrome represent inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength, respectively, this study shows that the values of both groups and sexes are lower than those expected for individuals without disability.

In addition, the results of inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength of individuals with Down syndrome who practice hippotherapy were greater than those who do not. A single-subject experimental design study replicated in eleven patients with multiple sclerosis. Horseback riding in children with cerebral palsy: The tasks proposed by the KTK Test were organized in the form of circuits, as suggested by Ribeiro 23 and performed with one individual at a time. Modeling dynamic resource utilization in populations with unique constraints: Most are poor, with little or no access to care or information, and unable to attend early stimulation treatment clinics 4.

According to the study by Herrero et al. The table above presents the results of tests to evaluate respiratory muscle strength. From the contact with those responsible, the research objectives and the procedures to be carried out were oriented.

For both sexes, the mean values of the tasks performed by the PG were higher in comparison to individuals in the NPG Table 4. Teles 38who evaluated the effect of a motor activity program to develop motor coordination of individuals and non-DS patients, concluded that female subjects had better results in motor coordination.

After applying the test, there was a strong positive correlation with significance between the duration of the equine therapy in months and the following variables: Down syndrome DS of all genetic syndromes is the most common. In this study, we did not have access to the number of hippotherapy sessions that each individual performed. The grouping of variables11 and 13 showed the best linkage with a shorter distance after the proposed treatment Figures 3 a and 3 b.


A by test or B by the overall value of the MQ Motor dd outcomes following Nintendo Wii use by a child with Down syndrome. Am Rev Respir Dis. Dr Langdon Down and ‘mongolism’.

The utility of spirometry in diagnosing pulmonary restriction. Therefore, the greater the time that Hipppotherapy performs, the greater the value of the variables in question. The results of this study suggest that the practice of hippotherapy may influence respiratory muscle strength in patients with Down syndrome, of both sexes and aged between 7 and 13 years, when compared with individuals with Down syndrome who do not practice hippotherapy.

Pereira and Leandro 35 corroborate our work, stating that they verified the benefits of Hippotherapy in the main delays of motor development with patients with DS submitted to the treatment protocol with exercises for balance, motor coordination and muscle strength.

The predicted values of MIP and MEP, estimated by the equation proposed by these authors, for both females and males, were higher than those obtained in the results of this study. The maneuvers were sustained for a minimum period of 2 seconds, with verbal encouragement from the evaluator.

In this study, individuals exhibited postural deviations evidenced by the difference in distance values and a smaller grouping of variables in the cluster analysis. Introduction Every minute, about 20 babies are born with some kind of disability, totaling approximately 9.


Based on the results, it was possible to verify that: Horseback riding in children with cerebral palsy: The analyses were done individually and the post-test was performed after doan treatment sessions. The result of each item is compared with the normative values provided by the manual, being assigned a quotient to each item.
