Accreditation Check:

Older adults with neurological deficits have a greater risk of falling due to balance-related issues. This can lead to fear of falling, which in turn may decrease the patient's mobility and further increase the risk of falling. This decreased participation and physical activity negatively impacts the patient's quality of life. Join Dr. Wing as she presents an innovative progression of interventions from simple to complex balance activities to challenge and facilitate balance for function in a variety of environments.

1. Balance Activities in a Supported Environment

Recognizing limitations of safety in balance tasks and creating a supported environment with equipment and tools allows the patient to experience confidence while learning new motor strategies. Dr. Wing will demonstrate balance activities using a variety of body supported balance equipment to prevent the patient from falling and so they feel safe while practicing balance activities

2. Balance Activities Using an Obstacle Course

In ADL and IADL activities patients will encounter challenges to balance. Functional training to practice strategies to safely negotiate these various tasks allows the patient to experience confidence while learning new motor stratagems.

3. Outside and Community Environmental Challenges

Optimal recovery for those with neurological deficits should address patient participation outside of the home. Negotiating outside and community environmental challenges needs to be included in the plan of care.
