In addition, the knowledge and skills acquired enable second-cycle graduates to be actively involved in the design and evaluation of innovative proposals for protocols of motor and sports activities adapted to different situations of age, gender, ability and to the presence of stabilised chronic pathologies in view of the fact that this is a constantly evolving subject and that the need for adapted motor and sports activities is not yet fully expressed and perceived in many socio-economic and local realities.
