‏In all societies there is a group of people with disabilities who need special care. In addition to having a lower intelligence IQ, they also have significant problems with adaptive behaviors ,inactivity and physical activity which are dangers to them. In addition, increasing muscular readiness make it essential for independence in daily activities. Thirty women were randomly divided into two experimental and control groups. First, pre-test muscular endurance test was performed on all subjects by sit & up test, and then experimental group performed programmed aquatic exercises for eight weeks. During the control group, they performed their daily activities.
At the end of the eighth week, all subjects were reassessed. Since it was not possible for them to sit and walk alone, they used the exercise method (taking the legs by another person).
‏The results of the dependent t -test shows that muscle endurance significantly improved with the experimental group in the post-test compared to the pre-test (P = 0.001).
‏The experimental group's muscle endurance significantly improved in the post-test compared to the pre-test
‏Aquatic exercises can be used to increase muscle endurance and improve the behavioral performance of women with disabilities.
Maintaining muscle strength and endurance is crucial to improving the quality of life. Aquatic exercises have a positive effect on social behaviors and relationships with others. The only worrying factor is the lack of amenities and the perverse problems of these People in the society. It is suggested that research be done to examine the needed possible facilities.
