Tactile stimulation in improving the motor fitness of children, adolescents and adults
Languages of publication
Studies on the role of the senses and their integration have focused mainly on visual awareness, which is rather surprising if we consider that touch is the first sense to develop. The results of recent studies underlined the importance of awareness of tactile information in human development. Having this in mind, the present study addresses the role of awareness of tactile stimulation in physical exercises to improve a psychomotor development of children with various psychomotor disorders. The outcomes of studies devoted to this subject suggest that the tactile stimulation in conjunction with physical exercises creates positive environment for compensation of the children’s deficits. That is why there is a strong need for implementation of tactile stimulation in physical exercises.
