- Less people falling and less falling incidents
- Balance training and functional training work best
- Better results with supervision from health care providers
Community dwelling elderly fall less if they follow a fall prevention program, particularly if it includes balance exercises and functional training. Even if they fall, it may lead less often to fractures or medical care. Researchers concluded this after an extensive meta-analysis of 108 effect studies from 25 countries including 23,407 community dwelling elderly.
