Jump Movement Skills Pattern Among Indonesia Mentally Retarded Children Using D-Mat

Keywords: children, D-Mat, jump, mentally retarded


The study purpose. Currently, the study was to get the pattern of jumping movement skills for mentally retarded children using D-Mat. It is as part of technology advanced to support physical activity and sport. While mentally retarded children have different ways to jump with normal children.

Materials and methods. The method used qualitative research using observational design. Participants are mentally retarded children aged 6-11 years who are divided into two groups, namely ages 6-8 years and ages 9-11 years. The data were collected through a process of observation and video recording. While the validation of the jumping movement test used observational and test-rater from 2 experts for the needs of mentally retarded children. Data analysis techniques used the Kruskal-Wallis test with a significant level of p <0.05 and descriptive statistics.

Results. The findings concluded that the jumping movement pattern of mentally retarded children aged 6-11 years is forward jumping movement. They are easy to do it using D-Mat. This movement model is quite stable and easy to master.

Conclusions. Each component of the movement also shows fairly good stability according to the characteristics and needs of each child.
