The second edition contains everything that made the original edition so popular and the FallProof program so widely recognized and well received. Written by Dr. Debra Rose, foremost expert in balance disorders and programming, this book continues to be the only text to address the multiple dimensions that contribute to balance and mobility. By exploring the reasons underlying falls, readers gain the knowledge to offer more comprehensive assessment and programming. 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. The FallProof program is customizable for individual clients, with exercise progressions for early, middle, and late class modules. In addition, the program offers the following benefits: Flexibility. Program participants can engage in group activities that take into account their individual abilities so that the program is not too easy or too difficult for them. Guidance. Safe and easy ways of presenting each of the program's exercise components are illustrated, addressing issues ranging from safety concerns to the best ways to provide feedback to participants. Supplemental materials. Reproducible health, assessment, and program-related questionnaires help instructors gather crucial information for effective programming. Results. The FallProof program has been proven to reduce the risk of falling in participants who've completed one or more rotations of the program. The second edition of FallProof contains significant content updates and new references and features for both professionals and students. A new section on goal setting and behavioral management techniques is included, as well as a section on prioritizing screening and assessment tests, scheduling subsequent tests, and organizing testing in a group environment. Each chapter has tools for maximizing retention and un
