Background: The paralympics is maybe one of the biggest sport events for inclusion in the recently years, which give space for any modality that adjust at the special necessity those
special players, in special the football five for visually impaired. Therefore it’s so important to understand the benefice that the sports can do in the body of those players. However it still
doesn’t have an metabolic profile about those kind of players. The principal means of the study was delineate one cardio respiratory profile, metabolic profile and anthropometric profile of the one
visually impaired amateur team of football five.
Methods: Eleven subjects from the football five team of the Associação de Cegos do Rio Grande do Sul. They are male subjects with visually impaired and were between 17 and 41 years.
The subjects have not any especially physical training. All subjects according to assign the informed consent term (TCLE) conforming the resolution CNS 196/96 of the Brazilian ministry of health. All
subjects accomplished the anthropometric measures protocol compost for: Stature (Stadiometer, 1mm of. precision), body mass (balance FILIZOLA®, 0-150 kg, 0,1 kg of precision) and sum of skin folds
(Abdominal, Axillary, Bicipital, Thigh, leg, Subescapularis, Suprailiac, Tricipital and Thoracic). For the accomplish measure we used International Society for Advancement of Kinanthropometry
guidelines (ISAK). Moreover, the subjects accomplished the computerized ergospirometric test on the treadmill which we determined the: ventilator parameters (VO2), cardio respiratory (heart rate) and
metabolic parameters (caloric expenditure) on the first and second threshold and maximum threshold too. For the threshold ventilator determination we used “ramp method” according with American College
of Sports Medicine guidelines (ACSM, 1990). The procedures of this study were accepted from Ethics and Research committee for the Centro Universitário Metodista IPA (294/2007).
Results: Anthropometric measure, age 30,45±11,86 yrs (Min. 15, Max 48 yrs), weight 79,79±18,38 kg (Min. 53,40 Max.107 kg), height 1,72±0,06cm (Min.1,64 Max. 1,82 cm), IBM 26,80±5,20
kg/m2 (Min.19,85 Max.34,77kg/m2), Sum skinfold 133,25±34,14mm (Min.91 Max 174mm). Cardio respiratory and metabolic measure, aerobic threshold: HR1lim 131,55±11,81bpm, VO21lim 16,55±3,61
(ml/Kg.min), CE1lim 6,45±1,57(cal/min). Anaerobic measure: HR2lim 167,18±11,24 bpm, VO22lim27,31±5,99 (ml/Kg.min), CE2lim 10,64±1,94 (cal/min). Maximum values: HRmax 189,45±7,24 bpm, VO2max
37,45±11,75 (ml/Kg.min), CEmax 14,33±2,65 (cal/min).
Conclusions: The present study could make an ergospirometric profile and kinanthropometric profile for the subject of the study with have visually impaired from football five team.
