Brief Summary:
To investigate the relationship between respiratory function and core muscles strength in athletes with disabilities and compare with healthy athletes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Disabilities Multiple Other: Muscle strength evaluation and Respiratory function Tests

Detailed Description:
The determination of parameters affecting the performance of high performance athletes that are effective in performance is very important to determine the physical performance potential. The body is a kinetic chain and core muscles play an important role in this chain. The relationship between the performance ability of the athletes and the relationship between the core muscles and performance abilities and respiratory function is extremely important. Different functional classifications caused by different barriers (physical, mental or visual) in many paralympic branches affect physical training because it is directly related to the classification, performance and training adaptations of an athlete. Determining the parameters that affect the respiratory function of paralympics is very important to develop a training program with strategies that can affect the physical performance of athletes and thus to achieve the desired results in training and competitions. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between respiratory muscle strength and core muscle strength in paralympic athletes (athletes with disability).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. FVC (the rate of normal value by the spirometer device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Functional vital capacity: will evaluate by the rate of normal value by the spirometer device (Pony FX Cosmed device)

  2. FEV1 ( the rate of normal value by the spirometer device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    First second Forced Expiratory Volume:will evaluate by the rate of normal value by the spirometer device (Pony FX Cosmed device)

  3. Muscle strength (Abdominal Flexor Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Abdominal Flexor Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device (IsoMed 2000, trunk attachment).

  4. Muscle strength (Abdominal Exstansor Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Abdominal Extensor Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device (IsoMed 2000, trunk attachment).

  5. Muscle strength (Abdominal right rotator Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Abdominal right rotator Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device (IsoMed 2000, trunk attachment).

  6. Muscle strength (Abdominal left rotator Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device) [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    Abdominal left rotator Muscle Strength: will evaluate as Newtonmeter (Nm) by isokinetic device (IsoMed 2000, trunk attachment).
