Abstract

Falls and related injuries are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in people aged 65 years and older. Despite all the many health benefits already reported from regular exercise participation including reduction of falls, this population group is still reported to be inadequately physically active. Therefore, it is critical to develop and validate new options that can enhance exercise uptake, sustain participation of this group and reduce their risk of having falls.
