Profile Dermatogliphy of Professional Padle Players Of Brazil


The paddle is a strong sport in the brazilian southern region, but little publicized in the media and low in scientific
publications. It has similar features to tennis and squash. The dermatogliphy is a protocol to better assembly of the training
program cycles, and look for possible talents. The study aims to determine which is the dermatogliphy profile of professional
paddle players, comparing the results with other studies using the dermatogliphy as data collection method. They were selected
voluntarily 20 professional male paddle players (age= 28,85 ± 6,18; stature (m) = 1,80 ± 0,05; body mass (kg) = 80,44 ± 8,25),
who were competing in the 2nd stage of the Brazilians Championship of Paddle, held in Curitiba, PR, using the protocols of
Cummins and Midlo (1961), stature and body mass (FERNANDES FILHO, 2003). For statistical analysis was the Shapiro-Wilk
test used to check normality of variables and Pearson's correlation to check relationship between two parametric variables. The
dermatogliphy profile verified by fingerprints were: A= 0,65 ± 0,88; L= 6,4 ± 1,88; W= 2,95 ± 1,9; D10 = 12,30 ± 2,3; SQTL= 118,13
± 23,42, with correlation between SQTL and D10 r = 0,64. Greater genetic predisposition was verified for explosive strength and
speed, and lower in coordination. It is recommended to apply more research in the form, relating dermatogliphy with other
variables within the sport, for further enrichment of information.
