Meaning healthy body, established by the tax and social context by the media, is generally relating to aesthetics. Bodies without these patterns, most people with disabilities have in their own bodies "marks" which can be understood as being synonymous with a patient, and therefore becomes a group less accepted by society. Hybrid bodies are marked at the same time by the weak, the performance and technology, and enable people with disabilities, especially to athletes, new ways of living, coping and overcoming its limits, including them in contemporary society through sports practice and skill development never reached or allowed.
