Seventeen psychiatric patients (average 31.5±9.5) were subjected for six months to a rehabilitation programme which included a weekly session training of 120’.
This programme evaluated the changes of physical exercise about the coordinative and conditional qualities and about the psycopathologic condition.
The patients were subjected to a “field” test and to a psycopathologic evaluation test of the beginning and at the end of the programme.
The field tests showed, in particular, on improvement of the dynamic balance (p<0.05), of reaction time (p<0.002) and of speed in on endurance test (p<0.05).
The psycopathologic evaluation test showed a significant improvement (p<0.05).
The results have permitted to anticipate the admissions and decompensations and this has developed the patients mentality considering their natural experiences.
