PREVENT-SOS: Technological developments to identify risks in natural aquatic spaces
As a result of the project “PREVENT-SOS: Technological developments to identify risks in natural aquatic spaces” brought about the creation of a digital tool that includes the development of an entire methodology that enables: i) identifying risks (both static and dynamic) on beaches; ii) quickly and efficiently registering all the information required for a truly representative statistical analysis, iii) managing the identified risks (both for lifeguards and beach coordinators) and, iv) informing the end user (bathers). The set of actions proposed in this methodological development is aimed at preventing drowning, which represents the second cause of unnatural death worldwide.
Development of an assesSment tOol for predicting the dynamic riSk of drowning on bEAcheS – SOSeas
As a consequence of the previous project, the current project “Development of an assesSment tOol for predicting the dynamic riSk of drowning on bEAcheS - SOSeas” is being developed at the European level, which aims to export the developed methodology to bathing areas around the world. To this end, given that dynamic risks are specific to each geographical area, it was observed that obtaining the meteorological-oceanographic information was a limiting factor given the diversity of sources and formats in which it is usually presented. To solve this problem, the necessary channels to access the Copernicus Program databases have been integrated into the tool (https://www.copernicus.eu/en). This project is being developed in collaboration with IH Cantabria. For more information, please consult the website (https://soseas.ihcantabria.com/) and the APP still being created for this project currently underway (https://soseasapp.ihcantabria.com/#/conditions) The results obtained are being validated on Brazilian beaches used as pilot study areas at the international level outside Spain and Europe.
New mechanisms to understand the risk of injury in sport at different stages of the sports season
As a result of the project "New mechanisms to know the risk of injury in sport in different periods of the sports season" a digital tool has been created to control the injuries of each athlete, as well as their biomechanical constants, eating habits and state of emotional health in such a way that there is information that combines several factors at an important level of detail and in a personalized manner for each player. In this way, inputs are obtained to generate a statistical analysis that alerts us on the athlete’s probabilities of suffering a certain injury.
Study on the influence of physical exercise during pregnancy on the prevention of the consequences of excessive weight gain
As a result of the project "Study on the influence of physical exercise during pregnancy on the prevention of the consequences of excessive weight gain" the web page www.embactiva.es came to be, and was presented at the first meeting of the Spanish Thematic Network on Exercise during Pregnancy. This website is being recognized as a link of interest from the Spanish Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (SEGO), the University Hospital of Fuenlabrada, ANIS, Farmacosalud, Clínica Zuatzu, among others.
