OTAGO – balance and falls prevention for the older person.

A walking programme, along with 17 strength and balance exercises are given to preserve and improve strength, balance, competence, and confidence. Designed primarily for 65+, the exercises have proved a positive and fun way for all adults who are at risk of falling, to improve their balance and strength.
