Social outreach exercise programmes

Pin It

The Physical Education and Exercise Laboratory has become involved in new areas of activity relating to exercise and health issues and created new prospects for special physical exercise regimens for fit persons as well as persons with chronic diseases of all ages. Initially, activities were organised for groups of school age children featuring basketball, handball and badminton. In 1997, funds from the Community Support Framework enabled the implementation of special exercise programmes for persons suffering from cardiovascular diseases diabetes, obesity, asthma, kidney diseases, osteoporosis, pain in lumbar region and the elderly, while systematic evaluation of the participants' functional skill were made in order to improve their physical condition and health. Thus far 840 individuals in total have benefited from these programmes and have been evaluated at the Physical Education and Exercise Laboratory with specialised measurement equipment based on their individual case characteristics.
