Abstract
The physical component of work tasks can be a problem because of muscle weakness; therefore, The aim of this research was providing normative data for the physical fitness of intellectual disability students by the Canadian Standardized Test of Fitness (CSTF), in middle school and high school of Hamadan province.
For this purpose, 314 students (115 female, 199 male) with intellectual disability (age: 18.53±2.55 years, body mass index (BMI): 23.42±4.84) were selected from Special schools in Hamadan province. At first, the height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) of the students were measured. Then, flexibility (Sit and reach test), muscle endurance (push-ups and sit-ups tests), muscle strength (hand grip test), and Cardio-respiratory endurance (Canada Home Fitness Test), were measured by the CSTF battery test. Descriptive statistics, One-way ANOVA test, and Percentiles 20, 40, 60 and 80 were used to make the normative data and analyze the data.
There was a significant difference between females and males in muscle endurance and strength, and Vo2max levels (p<0.05). The mean and standard deviation of sit and reach test was 19.85±9.89 (cm), push-up was 11.89±8.48 (n), sit-up was 19.26±9.54 (n/min), hand grip was 32.49±12.44 (lb), and Vo2max was 60.51±5.97 (ml/kg.min) for all participants.
This normative data can be used for scoring and grading of female and male intellectual disability students.
