Effect of Surfaces on Fall in Elderly

2016-09-29 23:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To investigate effects of soft, sand and hard surfaces on functional ability and falls in elderly with or without history of multiple falls.

Description

- To compare effects of exercise training on hard, soft and sand surfaces in elderly without history of fall during 12 month prior to participate in the study

- To compare effects of exercise training on hard, soft and sand surfaces in elderly with history of single fall during 12 month prior to participate in the study

- To compare effects of exercise training on hard, soft and sand surfaces in elderly with history of multiple falls during 12 month prior to participate in the study

- To compare the changes of functional ability and risk of fall after exercise training on hard surface among elderly with no fall, single fall and multiple falls during 12 month prior to participate in the study

- To compare the changes of functional ability and risk of fall after exercise training on soft surface among elderly with no fall, single fall and multiple falls during 12 month prior to participate in the study

- To compare the changes of functional ability and risk of fall after exercise training on sand surface among elderly with no fall, single fall and multiple falls during 12 month prior to participate in the study
