4th Transnational Project Meeting, Patras (EL) 14th - 17th November 2023
The 4th Meeting of our #PA4AGE project concluded a few weeks ago. What we collected was the feedback needed to finalize the content of the platform and mobile App both developed by the technology partner PIKEI.
The purpose of this very practical material will be to enable health and social care professionals in the field of physical activity (PA) to acquire the necessary knowledge to promote exercise among people at third age.
One of the contents of the learning material will be aimed at behavior change to reduce sedentary habits by introducing small moments of physical activity into everyday life through an intervention plan also developed together with one's trainer.
The platform will also feature examples of exercises that can be done safely and independently, even for more frail people, precisely because we believe that psychological and motor barriers should not be an impediment to leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
The PA4AGE consortium recommended that older persons reduce their inactive time and replace it with physical exercise of any level, including light intensity, as it has numerous health benefits.
