Exercise-based fall prevention: Can you be a bit more specific?

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Trip-specific perturbation training reduces trip-related falls following laboratory-induced trips and, prospectively, in the community. Based on an emerging body of evidence, we hypothesize that employing task-specific perturbation training as a stand-alone approach or in conjunction with conventional exercise-based approaches will significantly improve the effectiveness of fall prevention interventions. SUMMARY FOR TABLE OF CONTENTS PAGE: Task-specific perturbation training may be an ideal alternative or addition to conventional exercise-based approaches to fall prevention.
