Did you want to watch the Otago strength and balance exercises at home? Click on the video and you will hear an introduction to the value of these exercises and then be able to exercise along with Morag in a series of warm up, strength, balance and cool down exercises. This video lasts approximately one hour and you will need a reasonable broadband connection. Remember it is always best to check with your medical practitioner that your health is good enough to exercise safely at home if you are unused to exercise. However these exercises have been used in many research trials and have been shown to reduce falls risk and improve steadiness and stability.
Later Life Training (LLT), as part of the ProFouND project, have produced a ‘follow me’ DVD which can be viewed at home by older people to support their home falls prevention strength and balance exercise programme. You can view it and watch online as often as you like. You can also purchase an English language version of this DVD from http://www.laterlifetraining.co.uk/product/otago-follow-dvd/
