water walking in spirometric values
Experimental: practice swimming complemented with water walking
Other: Water Walking
Practice swimming complemented with water walking at the end of each session and those who only practice swimming. In this study participated 28 subjects (mean age, 7.68 ± 1.16 years) and was divided into two groups: swimming group (SG) (N=9) and swimming complemented with water walking group (SWWG) (N=19). The study was performed in 12 weeks with 3 moments of evaluation (M1, M2 and M3) , with two sessions per week of 45 minutes each, we wanted to identify the benefits in pulmonary function - Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) and Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF). The water walking activity occurred in the end of each session for 6 minutes, performed in straight line with the water level at the children's chest. The spirometry tests were realized with the microQuark Spirometer®.
