Efficiency of Wii aerobic training on pulmonary functions in the Egyptian children with T1DM

Amira Hussin Mohammed, Tamer Ibrahim Abo Elyazed.

Abstract
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a form of diabetes caused by autoimmune damage of insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas which leads to hyperglycemia. It often occurs in childhood. This study aimed to determine the efficiency of Wii training on the pulmonary functions in the Egyptian children with T1DM. Thirty Egyptian children suffering from T1DM participated in this study. Their age ranged from 11 to 15 years. Glycosylated hemoglobin, blood glucose (fasting and postprandial) and pulmonary functions were measured before and after Wii aerobic training. The Wii aerobic training was conducted for 30 minutes, 3 times per week for 12 weeks. Comparing the pre and post treatment mean values of the measurable variables revealed significant improvements after the Wii training. It may be concluded that the Wii game training was effective intervention to promote the pulmonary functions for children with T1DM.

Key words: T1DM, Pulmonary functions, Wii, Aerobic.
