Abstract

Full Title  of Project

FitBack - The european network for support of physical fitness monitoring systems

Overwiew:

The purpose of the project is to prepare a multilingual online platform FitBack, which will provide feedback on the different components of physical fitness of an individual and contain key information for the establishment of a national, regional or local system for monitoring physical fitness of children and adolescents. By  creating  such a  platform, we  aim to bridge  gaps  between  European  political  recommendations  and the current  state  of  affairs,  as  well  as strengthen  cooperation  between sectors  (education,  health,  sport). The European network for the support of development of systems for monitoring physical fitness of children and adolescents at local, regional, national and European levels established through this project will allow examination of  population  trends,  the effects  of  national  policies  and  interventions,and enable the prediction of future trends. The project has two essential parts with following objectives addressed to different target groups:

1.The FitBack online application for adolescents, parents, teachers, physicians and coaches(target groups) will provide user-friendly graphical report containing information on the physical fitness of an individual based on the appropriate reference values.

2.Info point on the FitBack web platform for policy makers on local, regional and national level (target groups) will contain essential information about establishing systems for the monitoring of physical fitness of children and adolescents. To gather feedback on the usefulness of both essential parts of project, we will conduct multiplier sport events with target groups in partners’ countries.
