Active Balance for Falls Prevention training

April 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Balance is the ability to maintain a stable and controlled body position when moving. Balance plays an important role in daily activities such as walking, bending over to put shoes on, driving a car, or grocery shopping. Balance requires our body’s system to work together to control our movements. Older adults who have impaired balance are at great risk of falling and so Injury Matters’ Stay On Your Feet® program are hosting a half day workshop training, aimed at fitness professionals who work with older adults, which will go over:

  • What a fall is and why it is important to try to prevent them.
  • How the ageing process and other health conditions impact on falls risk.
  • What is normal and abnormal gait, balance, strength, and flexibility and how these may impact on falls risk.
  • How to identify falls risk and implement safety during exercise.
  • What recommended falls prevention and exercise strategies are and how to implement them.
  • Where to find falls prevention resources and help.

Who should attend?

The workshop is aimed at fitness and exercise professionals, therapy assistants, allied health assistants, nurses, support workers, aged care staff, and anyone who wants to learn more about exercises to prevent falls in older adults.
