25 Nov IGOID Moevap program (monitoring, evaluation and prescription of physical exercise in the elderly)
In this sense, IGOID-SPORTEC is a technology and science-based company created as a spin-off from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, which has its origins in the IGOID Group (Research in the Management of Sports Organisations and Facilities) and carries out research and transfer work with the aim of contributing to society by guaranteeing the validation of the programmes and protocols used and the use of high-quality technological material. One of the lines of work of IGOID-SPORTEC is the evaluation of the physical condition oriented to the health and the quality of life of the elderly population, being one of the most developed during the last years and pioneer in this population (http://protocolosigoid.es/). Specifically, the design and implementation of the MOEVAP Program stands out, a pioneering project based on e-Health, which aims to improve the quality of life of the elderly through the promotion of physical activity and healthy habits. This programme consists of a health-oriented assessment of physical condition and quality of life through different tests and technological means together with an IGOID-FITBE digital platform and the apptivados.com application.
Firstly, thanks to the advanced evaluation programme Healthy Elderly Sportec, an initial assessment will be carried out where data and information on different variables will be obtained and known, which will allow the classification of the elderly according to their state of health and level of fragility. This programme needs a very short period of time to be completed, which by means of different tests and trials and thanks to the use of technological equipment, we obtain an individualised analysis of the physical patterns, as well as the quality of life of the elderly. It is structured in 5 fundamental pillars, being a pioneer protocol at national level in the promotion and evaluation of the physical-healthy condition.
After knowing this assessment through the programme, we would move on to using IGOID-FITBE, an autonomous and flexible software and digital platform, which can be implemented on a large scale with the support of specialist technicians in a supervised or semi-supervised manner. On the basis of an initial assessment and the state of health of the elderly, the level of fragility of the participants is determined, assigning them recommendations and training sessions with individualised physical exercises for each one. All this could be consulted from any device with internet access, as well as by means of a digital interactive Totem located in the institutions, residences or day centres used interactively by the elderly where they can consult all the individual information and check their evolution, progress and improvement of health. Thanks to its training assistant, new global and personalised training can be created, as well as the incorporation of specific recommendations, challenges, daily talks, as well as a routine control of basic activity and health parameters.
This programme would allow each older adult to obtain an individualized final report with a series of recommendations to follow in order to promote an active and healthy lifestyle, as well as access to IGOID-FITBE allowing them to be continuously updated and to follow the progress and advances made. In this way, IGOID-SPORTEC aims to make the transfer of knowledge accessible and to minimise the distance between science and society, promoting and encouraging people to practice daily physical activity and good healthy habits.
