Abstract


The aim of this study is to compare the some performance parameters of 12-14 aged physically active mentally retarded and inactive mentally retarded individuals. 6 male sedentary mentally disables as a control group (age 13,33±0,21 year, weight 42,33±5,21 kg, height 149,66±6,44 cm) and 6 male physically active mentally disables (age 13,16±0,16 year, weight 39,66±2,37 kg, height 154,00±3,96 cm) were participated to the study. First of all height and weight measurement were taken, then they began warming up. Vertical jump was applied to control group and experimental group respectively. Immediately before and after the 50 meters speed test, heartbeats were taken with polar. The times of 50 meters speed test were taken by using chronometer. Spss 22 package program was used for evaluating the data. Result of the study, there were no significant differences in terms of age, height and weight of the groups. In addition that, the parameters of vertical jump, 50 meters speed test, anaerobic power and heart beat (fatigue) of the subjects were significantly different in favor of the experimental group. As a result, doing exercise for the mentally disables can improve health levels and quality of life.
