In November, the UP SRC Institute for Kinesiology Research presented mass measurements and training programs for the members of Daily activity centres for seniors. These activities will be carried out along with other partners of the project in spring 2016.

Applications for the participation in the free-of-charge mass measurements are still open.

If you want to know the aspects of healthy ageing, how healthy you are and what can you can for a healthy and independent old age, we invite you to participate in the free mass measurements.

Participants will get direct information about their general health and psychophysical condition right after the measurements.

Participants of the measurements should meet the following requirements:

  • individuals over 65,
  • individuals living at home independently,
  • individuals residing in Ljubljana,
  • individuals who feel healthy and able to walk the distance of 2 km without stopping and without the help of any tools.

Measurements will take place in the first half of March 2016 in Ljubljana. A mobile laboratory will be used for this purpose. Measurements will include tests of physical characteristics, physical status (muscular power, strength and balance, analysis of walking and flexibility), dietary picture, the state of mental abilities and lifestyle characteristics.
