“Silver Medal” project: KDL Awakening Project - The First One-stop Solution Provider for the Motor Development of Children Aged 0 to 10 Years in China

Project leader: Zhong Jiarong, Kong Lingsong

Advisor: Wang Xiaozan

Institute: College of Physical Education and Health

Project profile: The team's international projects are centered on the severe lack of physical activity among China’s children and adolescents at present (70%), which will result in a severe lack of motor development (67.3%) and a number of serious practical problems, such as muscle rigidity, clumsy movements and even inability to walk, tie shoelaces or hold chopsticks. In collaboration with Chinese and American universities, the team has developed a one-stop closed-loop solution integrating in-depth diagnosis and evaluation, personalized exercise prescriptions formulation, exercise intervention, and whole tracking feedbacks. It has developed a set of motor development evaluation tools (student evaluation), participated in the development of 108 themed offline exercise interference courses and 102 online exercise interference courses (prescription formulation), the teacher training system (prescription implementation), and so on. In addition, the team has also cooperated with enterprises to establish the intelligent growth space combining sports and education in the community. So far, It has directly helped over 200,000 children to improve their cultural learning and motor development, realizing the connection of off-campus and on-campus teaching.
