Research is part of our DNA, and GaituzSport R+D+I team led by Sheila Romero da Cruz, is working on the new research project “Muévete 2.0” which is a continuation of the ¡Muévete tú también puedes! Project, both in collaboration with the Physical Exercise, Sports & Society Research Group (GIKAFIT), in the UPV-EHU (Public Basque University) Physical Education & Sports Department financed through the UPV-EHU University-company-society 2023 call.
The aim of the ¡Muévete tú también puedes! Project was to find out and analyse the level the disabled’s inclusion in Physical Activity and Sports.
With this new research Project “Muévete 2.0” we take it one step further, in finding out and specifying physical activity contexts, as well as the effective inclusion of the disabled in this particular area.
This is why the project will be operational for 2 years during which time it aims to validate and verify the functional capacity feasibility of the disabled in physical activity and sports in the Autonomous Basque Country by measuring the motor skills and physical condition.
The launching of “Muévete 2.0” will enable us to discover the functional capacity of the disable taking into account gender, age, socio-economic situation and other contextual factors, to determine where said functional capacity is a relevant factor in doing physical activity and sports.
At GaituzSport we continue working transversally, providing knowledge and scientific evidence via research; likewise through the necessary innovative strategies to facilitate inclusion of the disabled in doing Physical Activity and Sports in equal conditions.
