Abstract

Studies have shown that functional strength and balance exercises can reduce the risk of falling in older people if they are done on a regular basis. However, the repetitive nature of these exercises; combined with the inherent lack of feedback of progress may discourage seniors to exercise in the home, thereby rendering such an intervention ineffective (Nyman et al. 2011). The study hypothesized that the use of visual feedback will be more effective in promoting adherence to home rehabilitation than standard care; thereby promoting independence, reducing the risk of falling, and improving the quality of life in older adults.
