Ivan Ošmera, Petra Kurková and Dagmar NemčekAbstract:
The aim of the study is to find out whether parents and their children wear bicycle helmets while cycling or, where relevant, whether they use other protective equipment during physical activities such as roller skating or riding a kick scooter. Also, to find out whether the helmet has an effect on injuries suffered by children while riding a bicycle or during other physical activities. The research sample consisted of 111 respondents (21 male and 90 female). The data were described in relative and absolute frequencies. Topics covered in the survey included: a) the use of bicycle helmets by parents and their children; b) the use of helmets during other physical activities by parents and their children; c) injuries suffered while cycling or during other physical activity. The results of the survey showed that most parents who do physical activities together with their children take care of their safety and actively encourage their children to prevent potential injuries.Pages: 82-85 | 470 Views 14 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
