Beschreibung:

The main objective of studies in this book is to address the growing concern of balance loss and falls in the aging population. The initial aspect looks at balance control in a dynamic environment. Observation of age and gender influence on motor control will be made in relation to a new dynamic balance testing platform (DBTP). The second feature aims to develop a novel and use-friendly test tool for healthcare practitioners to diagnose and predict potential fallers in order to prevent falls from happening. The topic of focus in the third portion relates to explore the benefits of exercise for seniors. Research has found that balance improves when physical activity is a part of daily life. Physical activity influence on reaction time will be investigated with a new approach to exercise classes for seniors. Finally, an understanding of motor control and balance may be acquired and physical activity incorporated into the life of an elderly individual, however this will never fully prevent falls from taking place. A novel approach to injury prevention due to falls is explored in the final portion of this book.
