SKI TRAINING FOR AMPUTEES
  1. Jolanta Majewska

    Abstract

    Rehabilitation by sport is of importance in regard to champions and also to the every-day life of ill and crippled people.

    The value of sport, on the one hand, as a part of the rehabilitation of amputees and, on the other hand, in satisfying the need for movement in the blind has been repeatedly demonstrated. However, thorough study is required to improve training methods and to enable the disabled to practice the particular sport events.

    Skiing is of special importance in the rehabilitation of disabled people.

    In 1956 the first ski courses for amputees were organized in Poland and showed that those who had undergone a limb amputation are able to practice this event in rehabilitation.
