The KTK battery therefore allows two types of analysis of the results: Several authors affirm that the horse, used as a kinesiotherapeutic instrument in the care of people with physical disabilities, offers a motor enhancement of body alignment, to control global synergies in addition to providing a static and dynamic balance increase 1516171819 For both sexes, the mean values of the tasks performed by the PG were higher in comparison eqjoterapia individuals in the NPG Table 4.
