This brand new edition presents the first multi-dimensional approach to the problem of balance and stability in frail elders. This approach systematically manipulates the individual's internal capabilities, the goals of the task being performed and the environment in which the task is to be undertaken.
This approach has been field-tested by fitness instructors and rehabilitative specialists and other activity professionals working in a diverse range of instructional settings, including community-based and residential care settings, with considerable success. This award-winning programme provides comprehensive balance and mobility programme training for health and physical activity professionals working with at-risk older adults.
This second edition will build on the solid theoretical foundation, update content and references where appropriate and add new material, including a section on how to prioritise screening and assessment tests, scheduling of subsequent tests and how to organise testing in a group environment. Also featured are exercise progressions for early, middle and late class modules suitable for each core component of the Fallproof! Programme.
Also new to this edition is the addition of a DVD to demonstrate how to administer and modify key screening and assessment tests, show the exercise progressions for the major programme modules and provides a sample class in action showing how to put it all together.
