Bones for Life® on Dynamic Balance and Functional Performance in Community Dwelling Adults Over Age 65.
The City of Cincinnati’s Dunham Recreation Center Seniors partnered with Integrative Learning Center in this pilot study of 22 women and 3 men. 2 groups participated weekly for six weeks. Group A was a single cross over design with a mean age of 72. Group B was designed to control for the passage of time and had a mean age of 75. This study is in the process of being submitted for publication thus we are limited in the data we can share. However, you might enjoy hearing the experience of the seniors in these videos.
