Community Intervention

Passus Saudáveis – Peripheral Arterial Disease

It is a supervised exercise program, combined treadmill walking with resistance exercises of lower limbs, performed 3 times per week during 6 months in patients with peripheral artery disease and intermittent claudication. It is measured the walking performance, physical fitness, peripheral blood flow parameters and atherosclerotic risk factors. After the program, a specific mobile app will be used to monitoring the exercise dose in this population.


It is a sports-based training program sustained in the Creativity Developmental Framework (CDF), which is intended to nurture creativity in youth. The core training approaches under the Skills4Genius activities are related with diversification, divergent thinking, physical literacy, teaching-games for understanding and differential learning. Indeed, an environment supported in the previous assumptions is ideally suited to foster creative behavior in team sports and should be considered by coaches and teachers to enrich their practices.
