Fall Prevention

To improve the health of the communities we serve, the Owensboro Healthpark has developed a 12-week small group supervised exercise class aimed at improving gait, balance, stability and muscle strength to help reduce the likelihood of a fall. Individuals who are interested in participating in the class must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be ambulatory without having to rely heavily on assistance from a walker or other mobility devices
  • Must be able to consistently attend 2 one-hour classes each week for 12 weeks
  • Must have medical clearance from a physician for participation in the program
  • Must consent to pretesting to determine if one is a candidate for the program and post testing to measure improvement as a result of the program

Results

In a piloted test group, participants who completed this class expressed the following results:

  • Decreased number of falls
  • More confidence and less fear of falling
  • Increased strength, stamina, and endurance

This program was developed by a collaborative effort between physical therapists and exercise professionals.
