easy simple quick balance test to assess fall risk over 60s
In this video I take you through a few very simple balance tests so you can assess your risk for having a fall.
In Australia falls are the leading cause of injury deaths accounting for 37% of all deaths (AIHW p142) and in 2014-15, falls were the main cause of hospitalised injuries (41%)
If you find after doing this video that your balance is poor then please work harder on improving your strength and balance. At any age you can get stronger and improve your balance.
Never stop working on your body. I will help motivate you. Your old age can be your happiest years if you stay healthy.
