We've now selected the winner of the 2022 competition for student project of the year!
We congratulate Jakob Prechtl from Julius-Maximilian-University of Würzburg for winning the Student Project of the Year Award 2022 for his"BewiS - Bewegte inklusive Schule" project!
The prize includes a "Starter Set for Ambulatory Assessment from movisens"! With an activity sensor Move 4 including accessories and the analysis software DataAnalyzer, Jakob is perfectly equipped for her next research project. The winning prize has a total value of around 2000 euros.
This project "BewiS - Bewegte inklusive Schule" examined the physical condition of children and adolescents with an intellectual disability during various validated sport tests. The activity sensor Move 4 recorded the physical activity of pupils at support centres with a special focus on mental development during the morning lessons. The research approach presumes that this group of people does not move enough for various reasons, which can have an impact on their physical and mental health. Based on the results and in cooperation with the schools, a physical activity concept will be developed to promote the everyday activity in schools. The effects and results of these measures will be recorded and evaluated in the coming years through renewed tests using the Move 4 activity sensors.
movisens congratulates on this important research work!
