Exercise is Medicine Days: FIBO advocates against lack of exercise
Making a clear statement against the lack of exercise in society: this is the aim FIBO
pursues as a member of the ‘Exercise is Medicine’ initiative. Together with EuropeActive the
world’s leading trade show will organise the ‘Exercise is Medicine Days’ on Friday and
Saturday as part of the Fitness & Health Forum in Hall 8.

Physical activity is to be moved into the focus of physicians, politics and society at large,now more than ever before. Exercise still plays too minor a role at doctors’ surgeries. For about a year now FIBO has been a trustworthy partner of the ‘Exercise is Medicine’ initiative. As a key interface between fitness and health this the world’s leading trade show now advocates that sport and fitness be used as essential instruments to promote health, prevent illness and support the healing process.

“In a body consisting of EIM Germany and Europe, DGSP (German Society for Health and
Prevention) and EuropeActive we will pursue the aim of motivating society at large to
exercise more at a forum with top-notch speakers held on the Medicine Days on Friday and
Saturday,” says Anke Brendt, Product Manager at trade show organiser RX Austria &
Germany.

Covid-related topics to dominate on FIBO Friday

The Covid pandemic is still omnipresent and has been impacting our society for over two
years now. All the more so since the issue of Long-Covid is now also moving centrestage –
and this will be addressed amongst other topics in the lectures and expert talks on FIBO
Friday.

Furthermore, visitors will also be able to attend an interview with karate fighter Lena Mikulic – someone who still struggles with the consequences of Covid-19 even months after her infection and who will share her experience with the audience. What we already know about the mechanisms involved in Long-Covid will be explained by Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Bloch, Head of the Institute for Circulatory System Research and sports medicine at the German Sport University Cologne, in his expert lecture.

FIBO Saturday: Exercise-is-Medicine approaches on an international scale

The second day will explore ‘Exercise-is-Medicine’ approaches adopted in different countries
and in the industry. The EIM Network in the Venice region, where doctors and sports
providers cooperate closely, will be presented by Prof. Andrea Ermelao and Dr. Daniel
Neunhaeuserer. The current status of the initiative in Poland will be covered by Anna Plucik-Mrożek, Manager of the Polish Exercise is Medicine Centre.

Dr. med. Thomas Schramm, Vice President of the German Society for Health and
Prevention, will report on how to organise a local network with a cardiology focus practice.
Finally, Prof. Leyk has installed ‘ActIv – Activate Individuals’ – a network with over 10,000 participants – to target the inactive and provide better motivation for sportspeople. He will also present hands-on examples for professionals to obtain greater reach.

Networking at the Meeting Point Health & Wellness (Hall 8)

During the trade show staff and academics will be on hand to answer any questions related
to the Initiative. Furthermore, it is planned to launch a dedicated landing page on ‘Exercise is Medicine’, which will go online over the next few days. Here interested parties and potentialn members can find detailed information on the Initiative.
