New Platform for fitness testing and interpretation based on IDEFICS/I.Family data

An interactive, evidence-based, multilingual, and free-access platform for fitness testing and interpretation in children and adolescents is based on data from the IDEFICS/I.Family studies. A recent study explains the implications of fitness assessment in youth and how the FitBack reference values and interactive platform contribute to it.

Physical fitness testing and monitoring during growth is important from a health, educational and sport point of view. The European Commission funded the FitBack project with the goal of developing a web-based, open-access and multilingual platform that provides individualised reports on fitness levels in children and adolescents according to pan-European reference values and health-related cut-points.
