Electromyographic evaluation of the lower limbs of patients with Down syndrome in hippotherapy. Acta Scientiarum. Health Sciences , vol. The muscles gluteus medius, tensor fasciae latae, rectus femoris, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, biceps femoris, tibialis anterior and gastrocnemius were evaluated by electromyography using gross RMS values, which correspond to muscle activation; the evaluations were performed on the 1st and 10th hippotherapy sessions frequency: once a week , and after 2 months interval without treatment, they were performed on the 1st and 10th hippotherapy sessions frequency: twice a week. It was noted that activation of the studied muscles increased with the passing of sessions, regardless the weekly frequency of attendance; however, the period without treatment resulted in reduction of this effect.

Hippotherapy consisted of two minute sessions each week for four months. Postural stability was evaluated before and after hippotherapy using a force plate to calculate the center of pressure COP , when subjects stood still for 30 seconds, with eyes open and closed. In both groups postural stability was reduced after the suppression of visual information.

This study corroborates literature supporting the use of hippotherapy as a possible intervention for balance disorders in patients with MS. Keywords: postural balance; equine-assisted therapy; multiple sclerosis. No Brasil, estudos revelaram taxas de 15 casos a cada Dessa forma, o grupo de estudo foi composto por 11 sujeitos: 7 no GI e 4, no GC. Tabela 1. Na fase principal, o tempo de montaria foi fixado em 30 minutos consecutivos com o cavalo andando ao passo.

Para o GC, o comportamento se manteve inalterado. Cabe destacar que esses estudos utilizaram a escala de Berg. Cattaneo et al. Korneck B, Lassmann H.
