Promoting Safety in Physical Activity

Safety of physical activity UKK Institute

Exercise-related injuries may reduce the health benefits of physical activity. Following professional guidelines can reduce the harmful effects of exercise.

The UKK Institute develops procedure models aimed at increasing the level of safety during exercise. These models can be used by health promotion and sports organizations. The goal is that the professionals will be able to recognize the risk factors associated with exercise and promote the prevention of related accidents typical to different stages of life.

Our key goals are to prevent

  • sport injuries among youth and young adults
  • senior citizens from being injured due to falling accidents.
