Physical activity and health: Finding the right prescription
Date:11/7/2008

mobility and health.
  • Examining the personal and environmental factors that influence the uptake and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Evaluating mechanisms for translating evidence into sustainable public policy.

    The Institute will also promote the application of the research results into new physical activity policies and programs in collaboration with partners and communities.

    "I commend IMHA for choosing physical activity as a strategic research priority," said Dr. Karen Chad, Acting Vice-President Research at the U of S. "As a physical activity researcher, I know first hand the positive effect of regular exercise on health and quality of life. We have had tremendous success in getting people in Saskatchewan moving through our award-winning Saskatoon in motion project."

    With a team of researchers drawn from the U of S, the Saskatoon Health Region, the City of Saskatoon and ParticiPACTION, Dr. Chad led a CIHR-funded project that became the research arm for the in motion health promotion strategy aimed at encouraging all citizens to make regular physical exercise part of their daily lives. The impact of in motion stretches far beyond Saskatchewan. The program has become a model for communities across Canada. The in motion team has won local, national and international awards for their achievements.

    While putting its focus on physical activity and mobility, IMHA will continue to support researchers working in the six areas that comprise its research community: arthritis, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, bone, skeletal muscle, skin and oral health, working not only in physical activity and mobility, but also in pain, disability and chronic disease, and tissue injury, repair and replacement. By funding excellent research in these areas, IMHA hopes to create knowledge that will help Canadians lead healthier and more active lives.
