Abstract

This paper introduces a seven-country international partner consortium project carried out under the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union. The project was titled L.U.C.A.S. (Links United for Coma Awakenings through Sport). Targeted user-group was acquired brain injured, spinal cord injury, and patients recovering from coma – many being profoundly impaired some being vegetative state. Elaboration and sharing of rehabilitation models to consider best practices targeting physical exercise, especially adapted sports, was catalyst of the project theme investigating a posited methodology. L.U.C.A.S. ran from January 2015 to December 2016 and was built upon an earlier Lifelong Learning European Program funded five-country project titled L.U.C.A. - Links United for Coma Awakening having its focus on learning and dissemination of good practices.
