Adapted Physical Activity Programmes

Based on the developed and performed activities in the framework of the ReSport project, testing results, evaluation and consultations with experts from different sport and rehabilitation fields we prepared a number of adapted physical programmes. We facilitated those sports in different locations and settings in the three years of the project and researched its implications for persons with disabilities.
