  • Participants: 152 participants, ages 55‐90; 127 women, 25 men.

  • Forward Functional Reach Test (Falls Risk):
  • Score of <6″ = significant increased risk for falls
  • Score of 6-10″ = moderate risk for falls
  • Score of >10″ = adequate functional balance
  • Results: Significantly lower risk for falls after 10 weeks
.
  • Average 2.25” increase in forward reach (raw pre-reach scores 2.7‐17”, raw post‐reach scores 4‐18”)
  • High Risk Category: Greatest gains: 3.3” increase in forward reach (raw pre-reach scores 2‐6”, raw post-reach scores 4‐14”).
