Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The objective of this research was to establish whether the diaphragmatic breathing affects the performance o fan fine motricity work. An experimental posttest was used. The participants were 16 women between 18 an 25 years. The experimental group was trained in diaphragmatic breathing and further evaluated in fine motricity on the purdue pegmoard. During the execution of the test the breathing frequency per minute was measured and were registered 6 kinds of mistake altogether the correct trials. The results suggest that the diaphragmatic breathing pattern influences on the motricity executions, which supports new investigation questions. The roll of learning on the breathing pattern modification is discussed in this sort of experiments oriented to base the clinical practice
