International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n16 p9537-9548 2016
This study has been conducted with a view to identifying and comparing the lower extremity proprioceptive senses of the university students who exercise regularly and those who do not. The study group included voluntary participants studying at various departments of Agri Ibrahim Çeçen University (Faculty of Education and Physical Education and Sports High School), of whom 65 exercised regularly and 59 did not engage in any sports activity. The proprioceptive senses of the subjects participating in the study were measured using standardized methods and materials. Their height and weight were measured. They were asked to do a warm-up run for 5 minutes and the study was ended once their proprioceptive senses were measured after they were found to have complied with the proprioceptive sense platform. The data obtained from the study was analyzed by using the SPSS 22 software package. Normality distribution was tested by applying the Shapiro-Wilks test. Parametric tests were preferred as the data was found to have distributed normally. A paired-samples t-test was applied to test the level of significance of difference between the students' proprioceptive sense scores. As a result of the study, it was established that the proprioceptive sense values of the male and female students who exercised regularly were better than those who did not engage in sports (p<0.05).
