Motorik module longitudinal study

The motor module (MoMo), which is part of the children’s and adolescent health survey (KiGGS) of Robert Koch Institute (RKI) in Berlin, was initially funded as a cross-sectional study by the Federal Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sport from 2003 until 2006 and provided representative data on a national level concerning the motor performance and physical activity of children and adolescents (N = 4,528) between the ages of 4 and 17 years.

The follow-up application to the MoMo baseline study entitled "Physical fitness and physical activity as determinants of health development in children and adolescents" was approved until 2021 after receiving approval from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in March 2015. The continuation of the MoMo study as a combined cross-sectional and longitudinal study is carried out as a joint project of KIT, Pädagogische Hochschule Karlsruhe and RKI under the overall direction of Professor Dr. med. Alexander Woll of KIT. A total of 5,106 children, adolescents and young adults participated in MoMo study Wave 1 from 2009 to 2012. MoMo study Wave 2 has already been started and builds on the baseline survey and MoMo study Wave 1.  Website
