Joeri Verellen, Bartosz Molik

Abstract


This manuscript reports the outcome of a project entitled “European Standards in Adapted Physical Activities” (EUSAPA). The purpose of this project was to define the purpose and the added value of an Adapted Physical Activity program as a part of the rehabilitation program. Furthermore, pointing out the goals and the benefits of adapted physical activities, and defining the key activities of an Adapted Physical Activity program in rehabilitation, will result in the specification of a number of competences required to successfully fulfill such a program. From these competencies, suggestions will be made for the optimization of current curriculum requirements in order to enhance the formation of professionals. Finally, recommendations will be outlined to define, develop and safeguard a legislative professional status for the Adapted Physical Activity program and its therapists, specialists, instructors, etc…, i.e. those who are coordinating the Adapted Physical Activity program.
