Win the battle of epidemic prevention and control with science and technologies

While inspecting scientific and technological tackling work about the prevention and control of COVID-19 in Beijing on March 2, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that, the scientific and technological tackling work about the prevention and control of COVID-19 should be treated as a major and urgent task. We should combine multidisciplinary forces, implement centralized leadership and collaborative promotion, and speed up R&D progress on the basis of ensuring the safety, and tackle key and difficult points of epidemic prevention and control, and provide powerful scientific and technological support to win the battle of epidemic prevention and control, which is also a war of people and a general war. This is a huge inspiration and encouragement for scientific and technological front and workers.


Beijing Sport University takes the initiative to respond to national calls, take actions, give full play to its advantages in medical and sports integration, and multidisciplinary tackling, carefully deploy scientific research emergency tacking projects, and provide scientific and technological support to win the battle of epidemic prevention and control. COVID-19 prevention and control shows a positive trend in China, and more and more patients are discharged from hospitals. But the treatment of COVID-19 shouldn’t be finished by “discharging from hospitals”—prevention, treatment and rehabilitation are indispensable in the medical system.


Beijing Sport University “Exercise for Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Research Center” (hereinafter referred to as “the Center”) was established on March 10, 2020. The Center serves for national demands, integrates multidisciplinary expert advantages, and focuses on carrying out in-depth studies on the rehabilitation of cardio-pulmonary function for COVID-19 patients discharged from hospitals and the promotion of cardio-pulmonary function rehabilitation by sports, etc. based on domestic leading sports rehabilitation, sports medical specialties and high-grade disciplinary sports rehabilitation medicine inter-disciplines in Beijing City. 


Over above ten days after the establishment of the Center, scientific and technological workers have adhered to BSU training spirit of “pursuing excellence”, made full use of every minute to speed up research, strove to find out treatment and rehabilitation methods, and provided scientific methods and technological supports to help patients discharged from hospitals recover soon based on their professional expertise. Currently, the Center has compiled Rehabilitation Guideline for COVID-19 Patients Discharged from Hospitals and Body Building& Lung Strengthening Gymnastics, with independent intellectual property rights.

Rehabilitation Guideline for COVID-19 Patients Discharged from Hospitals was compiled by the sports rehabilitation research team in the charge of Professor Qian Jinghua from the School of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Currently, the publishing work of electronic books has been completed, and will be published to the society in the near future.


Based on evidence-based practices and initial case studies, this guideline gives clear introductions and descriptions about the clinical characteristics of COVID-19, the main functional disorders of patients discharged from hospitals, functional evaluation methods, sports rehabilitation methods and precautions for special patients, etc., with strong scientific nature, pertinence and practicability, and has gained high praises from domestic and foreign cardiopulmonary rehabilitation experts.


The guideline provides home exercise rehabilitation guidance for COVID-19 patients discharged from hospitals, helps them recover daily living activities to the largest extent, remodel sports activity and physical activity level, improve life quality and finally return to a vigorous life.


The original method created by Professor Hu Xiaofei, Doctoral Supervisor of China Wushu School, Body Building& Lung Strengthening Gymnastics has been published.


Body Building& Lung Strengthening Gymnastics is created by Professor Hu Xiaofei specific to the causes and characteristics of all types of pneumonia based on summarizing above 30 years of experience in traditional health maintenance research, teaching and promotion, absorbing ancient guiding essences, including eight trigrams boxing, five-animal boxing, and Mawangdui guiding techniques, combing with modernized aerobic exercise theories and applying “assistant and guide” formula ideas in traditional Chinese medicine. This method can not only prevent and assist in the rehabilitation of all types of pneumonia, but also adjust ideas, cheer you up, and help patients establish scientific life concept; It can not only be used as the contents of prescribed exercise, but also alternate work with rest during the break. Therefore, it gained the favor of domestic and foreign fans immediately after it was released.


Scientific and technical workers in Beijing Sport University are now taking practical actions to undertake responsibilities, and for the objective of defeating the epidemic at last, it will give full play to its interdisciplinary fusion advantages, and contribute BSU force to winning the battle of epidemic prevention and control by developing and mastering scientific and technological achievements with independent intellectual property rights and making full use of science and technologies.
