Author(s): Dr. S Jagadeeswari Bharathiraja

Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analysis of anthropometric and physiological variables among hearing impaired students.
Subjects: Eighty hearing impaired students were selected from eight states (Andhra Pradesh n=10, Tamil Nadu n=10, Goa n=10, Kerala n=10, Karnataka n=10, Maharashtra n=10, Orisa n=10 and Pondicherry n=10) who participated in National recreation camp and the camp was organized in Chennai, India during the academic year 2012. The age of the subject ranged from 15-18 years as per the records.
Variables: Four anthropometric (Age, Height, Weight and Chest measurement) and Three Physiological (Pulse Rate, Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure) variables were taken. The instruments were Steadio meter, weighing machine, Inch tap and Spigmomanometer to use and all measurements were taken on the subject’s.
Statistics: Descriptive statistics (Mean& Standard deviation) and analysis of variance ANOVA were used analyze and to find out the significant difference, if any between the (states) group for selected variables. To test the significance the level of confidence was fixed at. 05.
