CPISRA Research: New Intitiative

CPISRA is extending its activity to facilitating and promoting research into exercise and sport for CP and related conditions. There are a number of reasons for doing this, including benefiting individual sports through improved techniques, training, sports equipment and impairment classification. A further key reason is research will enhance understanding and therefore assist health professionals, sporting bodies, etc. to further encourage recreation and sport development.

Graham’s Research Articles

Graham Condie, CPISRA Research Officer, will over the coming months write a series of articles relating to understanding and recognising CP participation in sport, recreation and exercise. Each article will be published below. The articles will be detailed and research based with an accompanied summary. We intend the articles to provide research based information and observations that maybe referenced by Members. For example, CPISRA plans to develop a CP Awareness course utilising information from the completed series of articles.

First and Second Articles now Published:

Please find below Graham’s articles published so far. To read click on the article name. If you have any comments or questions please contact Graham at graham.condie@cpisra.org .

REFERENCE INFORMATION

In collating and listing the below reference information relating to research into CP sport, recreation and exercise we are seeking to assist researchers in background research, raise awareness of research, encourage research networks, monitor research activity and help identify further research needs. For inquiries please you contact Graham Condie at graham.condie@cpisra.org .

Edinburgh University and Queen Margaret University

Edinburgh University and Queen Margaret University both located in Edinburgh, Scotland have commenced research projects into RaceRunning in partnership with CPISRA. These projects have two strategic roles, the first being to address the research required by the IPC in evaluating RaceRunning as a future IPC athletics event and the second to be a catalyst for CPISRA facilitating research into CP exercise and sport.
