Among the indicators of Decent Work in Brazil, the one referring to the "Safe Working Environment" was the only which had no improvement in the time series analyzed by the International Labor Organisation. There is an increased number of accidents with significant economic and social impacts. Given that many of these accidents involve the hands and cause functional sequels, this paper presents an integration between the approaches of Hand Therapy and Ergonomics in order to facilitate the process of rehabilitation and reintegration, as well as acting to prevent further accidents, thus contributing to the promotion of Decent Work in the country, particularly with regard to safety and health at work and equal opportunities. © 2012 - IOS Press and the authors.

alcohol is a psychotropic depressant of the central nervous system (CNS) that promotes simultaneous changes in several neuronal pathways, exerting a profound neurological impact that leads to various behavioral and biological alterations.to describe the effects of alcohol on the CNS, identifying the signaling pathways that are modified and the biological effects resulting from its consumption.a literature review was conducted and articles published in different languages over the last 15 years were retrieved.the studies reviewed describe the direct effect of alcohol on several neurotransmitter receptors (gamma-aminobutyric acid [GABA], glutamate, endocannabinoids AEA and 2-AG, among others), the indirect effect of alcohol on the limbic and opioid systems, and the effect on calcium and potassium channels and on proteins regulated by GABA in the hippocampus.the multiple actions of alcohol on the CNS result in a general effect of psychomotor depression, difficulties in information storage and logical reasoning and motor incoordination, in addition to stimulating the reward system, a fact that may explain the development of addiction. Knowledge on the neuronal signaling pathways that are altered by alcohol allows the identification of effectors which could reduce its central action, thus, offering new therapeutic perspectives for the rehabilitation of alcohol addicts.

Objective. To evaluate the influence of motor impairment in quality of life in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and the burden of their caregivers. Method. We evaluated 12 children, six females and six males with a clinical diagnosis of quadriplegic and diplegic CP, ages 5 to 12 years old, with scales Assessment of Quality of Life (AUQEI), brazilian version of the Burden Interview (BI), and Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). For statistical analysis we used the Pearson correlation coefficient to determine the correlation between variables. Results. The classification of GMFCS levels ranged from II to V, more frequent level IV (50%), the scale AUQEI score had an average of 46.75 points (maximum 78); and the BI showed mean score 24.16 (maximum 88). There was a strong significant correlation only between the type of CP and GMFCS; intermediate significant correlation between GMFCS and AUQEI; there was no correlation between the other variables. Conclusion. The motor impairment of children with CP is not related predictor of stress and caregiver burden, nor with the quality of life reported by these children.

This paper objectives to investigate the idol role in the construction of the football phenomenon in Brazil. For that, ex-football players, professional football players and football 5-a-side players were interviewed. The data analysis emphasized four categories: Creation, Diffusion, Idolatry and Roles. To analyze and make inferences from the data, the Enunciation Analysis, one of the Contend Analysis technique was used. The construction of idols was dependent on the appreciation of great achievements and creating bonds. The achievements are dependent on the categories time and space, giving an "expiration date" to idolatry and providing a cyclic renewal of idols. The stronger the relationship of the triad player-club-fan, the deeper the bonds will be. The achievements are "shown" in the media and if the bonds are well established, the image of the idol will be exalted and valued, nurturing and motivating the passion of the fans and cultivating the dream of being a football player in the social imaginary.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between vagal withdrawal and reactivation indices and maximal running velocity (Vmax) in taekwondo athletes. Eleven elite taekwondo athletes (seven men: 23.7±2.2 years, 72.4±7.0 kg, 178.8±7.5 cm, 51.9±2.9 ml.kg-1.min-1, and four women: 18.8±1.5 years, 61.8±1.8 kg, 168.0±4.4 cm, 41.6±2.4 ml.kg-1.min-1) performed a graded exercise test until exhaustion, with the last complete stage performed corresponding to Vmax. Heart rate variability (HRV) parameters were calculated at 1-minute intervals until 85% of maximum HR and plotted against time for the estimation of vagal withdrawal indices (τ, amplitude (A) and area under the curve (AUC)). Vagal reactivation indices were determined based on HR recovery during the first 60 s (HRR60s) and negative reciprocal of the slope of the regression line obtained during the first 30 s of HRR (T30). The vagal withdrawal parameters A and AUC were moderately and significantly correlated with Vmax (r = 0.61-0.71, P < 0.05), whereas τ presented a low correlation (r = 0.22-0.40, P > 0.05). T30 and HRR60s were also significantly correlated with Vmax (r = -0.77 and 0.64, P < 0.05, respectively). The present results showed that vagal withdrawal (A and AUC) and vagal reactivation (T30 and HRR60s) indices were significantly correlated with Vmax, suggesting that these indices can be used for the evaluation and monitoring of aerobic fitness in taekwondo athletes.

Objective: The purposes of this study were to: verify whether rating of perceived exertion (RPE) can be used to determine the training load, using heart rate (HR) and blood lactate concentration ([BLa -]) as the criteria measurements, and determine the association and agreement of training intensity distribution based on RPE and [BLa -] responses in taekwondo training. Methods: Eleven elite taekwondo athletes performed a progressive test, in order to estimate maximal HR, and two training sessions. Twenty-two training loads were quantified based on RPE (session-RPE), HR and [BLa -] responses. The training intensity distribution was performed using RPE and [BLa -] responses. The level of statistical significance was set at P<0.05. Results: All correlations between session-RPE with HR and [BLa -] methods were statistically significant (r=0.52-0.71, P<0.05). The association between proportions of training intensity distribution based on RPE and [BLa -] responses were significant (P>0.05) with a high agreement (k=0.71). Conclusion: Taekwondo coaches can use RPE to quantify training loads and training intensity distribution in order to better plan and assist training program.

Background: Postural control is often impaired in hemiparetic patients. During upright stance, hemiparetic subjects sway more than subjects with an unaffected hemibody, and they assume asymmetrical postures to place less weight on the affected side. Objective: To analyze functional reach and dependence on support devices among people with chronic hemiparesis and to investigate the relationships between displacements of functional reach and weight-bearing symmetry during upright stance. Methods: Fourteen participants with hemiparesis, classified as dependent on support devices or independent from them, were included in experimental procedures to record functional reach displacements and symmetry values. Results: No significant differences were found between the dependent and independent participants for any variable. However, when weight-bearing occurred on the unaffected side, the greatest displacements were significantly correlated with the most asymmetrical hemiparetic participants. Conclusion: Symmetry did not contribute to functional reach or independence from support devices among participants with hemiparesis. © Revista Brasileira de Fisioterapia.

Objective. Describe the cognitive and motor profile in premature children at school age in order to detail their clinical prognosis. Method. A bibliography review was realized by search on scientific articles on database of Lilacs, EMBASE, Cochrane, Scielo, Medline, Pubmed and researches in virtual library at São Paulo University - USP and Campinas State University - UNICAMP Scielo, Medline and Pubmed sites from the last 10 years. It was considered scientific and academic relevance according to the objective proposed in our study. It was excluded those with no academic relevance, and outside the context of the objective cited. Results. It was found 30 scientific articles, excluding 17 who didn't meet the proposed objective, with a total of 13 studies. It was observed that premature children when compared with term children, present relevant delayed cognitive and motor development, contributing to academic failure. Conclusion. Premature children show lower scores on cognitive and motor tasks as compared to children born at term.

In the present work we analyze the Country Profiles, open access data from ISI Thomson Reuter's Science Watch. The country profiles are rankings of the output (indexed in Web of Science) in different knowledge fields during a determined time span for a given country. The analysis of these data permits defining a Country Profile Index, a tool for diagnosing the activity of the scientific community of a country and their possible strengths and weakness. Furthermore, such analysis also enables the search for identities among research patterns of different countries, time evolution of such patterns and the importance of the adherence to the database journals portfolio in evaluating the productivity in a given knowledge field. © 2012 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.
