Abstract

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal
unintentional injuries in older people. Despite overwhelming
evidence for strength/balance training, adherence to both
group and home-exercise programmes is often poor1. A novel
approach is the use of home-based, strength and balance
video-games (EXERGAMES) but data from randomized
controlled trials are limited2. The aim of this study was to test
whether a 12 week EXERGAMES home-based intervention,
co-developed with older adults and therapists, can improve
the risk of falling [by Berg Balance Scale (BBS)] in older
adults living in sheltered housing.
