This course is offered in cooperation with Human Kinetics and utilizes the textbook, “Fallproof!, 2nd Ed” by Debra J. Rose.
The 2nd edition of FallProof! is a practical guide to implementing a multidimensional balance and mobility training program to address the increasing incidence of falls among older adults. This edition is a research-based resource with a range of balance and mobility assessments and detailed instructions on implementing the FallProof! program. The second edition contains everything that made the original edition so popular and the FallProof! program so widely recognized and well received. This book continues to be the only text to address the multiple dimensions that contribute to balance and mobility. This research-based approach has been field tested and has shown considerable success in a range of instructional settings, including community-based and residential care environments.
