Yuliya Kalmykova, Sergey Kalmykov, Helen Bismak, Olha Beziazychna, Daria Okun


Purpose: to investigate and determine anthropometric indicators (length and body weight, abdominal circumference, skin fold thickness, calculate body mass index and percentage of adipose tissue) of examined patients with metabolic syndrome, evaluate the effectiveness of our comprehensive physical therapy program based on the study of the dynamics of anthropometric indicators women with metabolic syndrome during the rehabilitation process. Material and methods: 28 women with metabolic syndrome were examined, the main group (MG) (n = 14) and the control group (CG) (n = 14), the average age was in MG – 31.49 ± 0.71 years, in the CG – 31.06 ± 0.57 years. Women of the main group studied according to the author’s program of physical therapy, women of the control group - according to the program, used for metabolic syndrome according to the methods of S.M. Popova (2005, 2008), N.A. Beloy (2001). Results: allowed us to analyse the dynamics before the indicators were fully scrutinized by the programs of physical therapy and to separate the results from the main and control groups. Conclusions: the author's program of physical therapy is effective, was carried out in order to normalize body weight and reduce the manifestations of abdominal obesity. Keywords: anthropometry, author’s program, women, physical therapy, metabolic syndrome.
