Participation in physical activity among children, young people and adults (monitoring, diagnosis, change).
The objectives are:
- to learn about the participation of children, young people and adults in different forms of physical activity, to get to know the effects of movement and the effectiveness of classes at different stages of education by measuring the level of physical fitness and performance;
- to identify the factors differentiating participation in different forms of movement
Dr Ewa Kruszyńska carries out her individual research in the following research areas:
- Sport and recreation in local and regional development strategies (mass sport),
- Trends and determinants of sport and recreation as a factor in raising the attractiveness and competitiveness of the region,
- Organisation and management of sport and recreation (marketing aspect, promotion of the region, determinants of sport and recreation development),
- Functioning and development of the service sector (sport and recreation infrastructure).

- Biological monitoring and modelling of physical fitness of people practising different sports disciplines in the process of adaptation to physical effort at different stages of the training process;
- Assessing and forecasting the back-up capacity of a movement control system with different coordination structures in the process of long-term adaptation to physical effort;
- Model characteristics of the functional preparation structure of athletes in the process of long-term adaptation to physical effort at various stages of the training process.
Prospects for the furthest development of selected directions of scientific research are based on the deepening of comprehensive research aimed at:
a) the furthest development of appropriate criteria for the assessment of physical condition, differentiated according to qualifications, gender, age, preparation period, separate sports disciplines, etc.;
b) solving individual theoretical questions related to the determination of mechanisms of forming an optimal structure of physical fitness of athletes;
c) development and improvement of estimated and forecast models of functional preparation of athletes.

Kinesiology in sports and recreation. Movement analysis, designing training and therapy.
The objective of the latest international project is to evaluate the kinematic parameters of metatarsophalangeal, ankle, knee, hip and spine joints of dancers of different dance styles, as well as to diagnose the pathophysiology resulting from dance technique and the dance shoes used. On this basis, it will be possible to establish standards of dancers’ gait for specific dance styles. This will allow the detection of differences occurring as a result of technical requirements of the dance movement or as a result of compensatory movements of certain diseases affecting professional dancers. This will make it possible to design corrective exercises, treatment methods and orthopaedic equipment for dancers and athletes practising aesthetic sports.
