    Focusing Reactive Balance in Fall Prevention

    Older adults and individuals with neurologic conditions are at an increased fall risk. The ability to produce quick reactive stepping is a critical component to decrease this risk and improve function. Perturbation-based balance training (PBBT) is an innovative intervention design with a goal of improving control of the needed rapid balance reaction. In this session, a highlight of the literature for the use of PBBT will be provided. In addition, videos of a few key outcome measures along with intervention progressions. The focus will be on translating the evidence to successfully implement PBBT-type interventions for any patient diagnosis.
