Dynamic Balance Ability and Hypermobility In Pre-School Children Who Participate Gymnastic Training
Dynamic Balance Ability and Hypermobility In Pre-School Children Who Participate Gymnastic Training

İnci KESİLMİŞ [1] , Manolya AKIN [2]


The aim of this study was to examine dynamic balance ability and hypermobility according to gender and gymnastics training participation in 6 years of age children. In this research, 76 male and 86 female totally 162 children with the mean body height 114.51±5.15 cm and with the mean body weight 20.54±3.73 kg participated voluntarily. While 47 of the children participating gymnastics training for 12 weeks, 115 of the children continued regular pre-school program. Dynamic balance ability measured by prokin tecno body with easy base for 30 seconds. Hypermobility identified by The Beighton criteria and cut-off point was taken as 4. For dynamic balance ability in 6 years of age there were statistically significant difference in favor of gymnastic participation compared with the others (p<0.001). There was a statistically significant difference in dynamic balance ability in favor of girls, according to gender (p<0.005). And hypermobility was significantly different in favor of gymnastic participation (p<0.05). The hypermobility rate of males is 23.7%, females is 43%, gymnasts is 51.1% and sedentary is 27%. There wasn’t any correlation between dynamic balance ability and hypermobility. As a result, although they have similar physical characteristics and in the same age group, their dynamic balance performance and hypermobility differentiated depending on factors of gymnastics training and also it was observed that the dynamic balance performance was in favor of girls. This study emphasized the importance of early participation in gymnastics.

Abstract The aim of this study was to examine dynamic balance ability and hypermobility according to gender and gymnastics training participation in 6 years of age children. Dynamic balance ability measured by prokin tecno body with easy base for 30 seconds. Hypermobility identified by The Beighton criteria and cut-off point was taken as 4. There wasn’t any correlation between dynamic balance ability and hypermobility. As a result, although they have similar physical characteristics and in the same age group, their dynamic balance performance and hypermobility differentiated depending on factors of gymnastics training and also it was observed that the dynamic balance performance was in favor of females. This study emphasized the importance of early participation in gymnastics.
