The analyses were done individually and the post-test was performed after thirteen treatment sessions. The results indicated improvements in static and dynamic balance, motor coordination and muscle strength.

Observations on ethinic classification of idiots. Rev Fisioter S Fun. Reference values for lung function tests. Maximal respiratory pressures in children. During hippotherapy sessions,no activity or extra exercise was performed, being transmitted to the patient only the three-dimensional motion provided by the horse. Thus, the data analysis was performed with results from 39 individuals with Down syndrome, divided into two groups: 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 expected for individuals without disability.

The same result was found by Maia 39 who carried out a research with DS patients, equotwrapia to verify the influence on the number of weekly sessions of physical activity in the level of motor coordination.

Moreover, it also shows that the time individuals who perform Hippotherapy have a strong correlation with most of the tasks of the KTK test, having significant results for the correlation of time with the tasks of MQ1 – Balance beam task; MQ2 – Single-Skip Jump Task; MQ3 – Lateral jump task and Total MQ – Total Motor Coordination, stating that the longer the individual practices the better the results of the tasks in these tasks and the total motor coordination.

June 11, ; Accepted: It can be emphasized that equine therapy presents benefits of improvement in global motor coordination.

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.

Previous studies indicate that chromosomal diseases, especially trisomies, have a high prevalence of heart disease in all age groups 27 According to the test, there was no significant difference for the variables equoterapka analysis, even though the raw values for the two variables were better in the PG.


Effect equotsrapia hippotherapy in the global motor coordination in individuals with Down Syndrome. The quantification of postural control allowed to measure changes during the treatment; in this way, the intervention with hippotherapy for children with DS improved their motor performance in fundamental motor skills walking, running, and jumping ; these improvements that may be related to the fact that the intervention staff maximizes time on the moving horse to allow children to respond to stimuli on an almost continuous basis.

The effect of hippotherapy on ten children with cerebral palsy.

Comparing the data available from the middle of last century and today, the increase in life expectancy of this population is evident 5. For this reason, these values were excluded.

Materials and methods The study included 41 subjects, 20 of which were in the hippotherapy practicing group PG and 21 of which were in the non-practicing group NPG.

All measurements were performed with the nostrils closed with a nasal clip, in order to prevent air from escaping through the nose. From the contact with those responsible, the research objectives and the procedures to be carried out were oriented.
