D7. Mini-symposium: ReSpAct 2.0: Rehabilitation, Sports and Active lifestyle in 2020 and beyond, new questions to ask?! A physically active lifestyle is important for functioning, health and well-being, especially in those with a disability. This has been recognized integrated in many rehabilitation programs. ReSpAct 2.0 is an observational cohort study on the evaluation of the physical activity stimulation program Rehabilitation, Sports and Exercise (RSE) up to 5-7yrs post rehabilitation. The RSE program is successfully implemented in over 30 rehabilitation centers and hospital departments in the Netherlands. The ReSpAct 2.0 study evaluates the diversity in self-reported physical activity (PA) among ~1700 participants. Variation in PA in daily life, work, recreation or sports, among persons with different disabilities, and over time are studied and addresses the role of modifiable/non-modifiable determinants of PA. Special attention is focused on perceived fatigue in association with PA. Also, the construct of PA among people with disabilities is studied for different measurement tools, perception, and cultural environment. Activity monitors have not been re-calibrated for energy cost and/or movement behaviors of those with disabilities. Energy estimates of questionnaires have still not been re-calibrated for differently perceived behaviors or actual energy costs of disabled individuals. The multinational ReSpAct research group presents different approaches towards PA stimulation and its outcomes in rehabilitation context/culture.
