What does research show?

While the gender gap is closing, research by Sport England indicates that men are still more likely than women to follow an active lifestyle. The barriers to women’s involvement in physical activity and sport are numerous and complex – and undoubtedly, with everyone staying at home due to the covid-19 outbreak, physical activity is more important than ever.

With this in mind, SportTech, FitTech and HealthTech products as those listed above, listed on the Active At Home database and supported through Sport Tech Hub have an important role in positively impacting participation levels and the health of the population across London and beyond.

Further resources

The Sport Tech Hub have been working with health, sport and fitness industry leaders to collate a range of technological solutions to help people keep active during the coronavirus pandemic.
