monitoring physical activity UKK Institute

Physical activity has a positive effect on one's health and functional capacity. The UKK Institute monitors and evaluates objectively the amount of physical activity and changes in the level of physical fitness within the population.

The UKK Institute develops and selects reliable and valid evaluation methods for monitoring and measuring physical activity and health-related fitness. Our target group is the entire population: children, young people, adults and senior citizens.

The UKK Institute encourages professionals to use uniform methods in evaluating physical activity and fitness when delivering health promotion and physical activity services.
