With SportKompas, children between 8 and 10 years old can discover which sports fit them best. Based on physical tests and insights on motivation, each child gets their own personalized report with 7 “sport planets” out of a set of 40 sports. All test results are stored on the digital platform, available for sports and physical education (PE) teachers. A built-in algorithm from Ghent University (Prof. Matthieu Lenoir) determines the ranking of sports based on these results.
Statistics and reports from SportKompas show a child’s favorite sports, their most common barriers to engage in sports, the kid’s sports participation rate and his/her movement skills against scientific benchmarks. The collected data from SportKompas provides new insights for researchers, schools, cities and governments. These insights can be used to initiate specific interventions or remediations as part of a broader health and sports policy.
The same digital platform is also used as a Movement Skills Platform for schools. Physical Education (PE) teachers can use the platform to differentiate their lessons with exercises based on the movement skills of each individual child.
