Abstract

The aim is evaluation the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and kinesiology band (KT) application to acute grip strength on healthy men. 18-30 aged voluntary healthy men were involved our study. The voluntaries BMI was calculated before they involved in. 90 voluntaries were divided equally into 3 groups as normal weight, overweight and obese participants. KT application was made to the flexor muscles of the dominant forearm. Grip strength measurements of upper extremity were made before and immediately after KT applications by using Jamar dynamometer. The relationship between all participants the average value of grip strength and BMI data were statistically analyzed. The categorized subgroups according to voluntaries BMI values, the maximum force obtained before and after KT application were analyzed statistically in themselves. All participants, BMI and after KT application the maximum grip strength value were statistically analyzed and the results were statistically significant. (p<0.05) Participants were divided into subgroups according to the BMI and then analyzed results. Except the voluntaries group have 30 kg / m2 and higher BMI, all participants grip strength values were increased after the application, but for all subgroups could not obtain statistically significant results (p>0.05) There is not significant increase the grip strength on the voluntaries have 30 kg/m2 and over BMI after the KT application. The grip strength of other group’s voluntaries who have between 20-24.9 kg/m2 and 25-29.9 kg/m2 BMI was increased after the application. But in all groups, could not obtain statistical significant results, between BMI and correlation the acute effect on grip strength of KT.
