Motorik-Module (MoMo) – the KiGGS Wave 2 module to survey motor performance and physical activity
Initially, the Motorik-Module (MoMo) Longitudinal Study was surveyed between 2003 and 2006 using a sub-sample from the baseline German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS). The federal representative sub-sample of KiGGS consisted of 4,528 children and adolescents aged 4 to 17. To date, there have been two further survey waves: 2009-2012 (Wave 1) and 2015-2017 (Wave 2). MoMo Wave 2 consists of motor performance tests, anthropometric measurements, questionnaire-based information collection on activity habits and motion sensor data. Initial results of MoMo Wave 2 will be published in the second half of 2018. The total size of the Wave 2 sample is estimated to reach 5,200 participants. As its central goal, the MoMo longitudinal survey aims to contribute towards the long-term improvement of child and adolescent health in Germany. A focus will be on developmental (age-related) and periodic (over time) trends in motor performance and physical activity, underlying factors and the impacts on physical and mental health in the development of children and adolescents.
