CARRILLO VIGUERAS, J.; GOMEZ LOPEZ, M.  and  VILCHEZ CONESA, P.. Practical proposal to combat discapacity: The use of Tai Chi and Qigong. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.21. ISSN 1695-6141.

In the present study, we evaluate the possibilities of Qigong exercise in people with low leg mobility, with the ultimate aim of improving their quality of life. We present a practical proposal which consists of easy exercises that justifies and adapts Qigong to a special population such as injured core, paraplegic, hemiplegic or any other condition limiting walking at home or in the hospital. The instruction in self care is the most important aspect in this work with adult people. The results obtained from the different experiments are an increase in muscle strength and above all change of attitude and quality of life for those affected.

Keywords : Tai Chi; Qigong; self-care; quality of life.
