21 Days – Significant reduction in Sway
At 21 days of participation we already see balance impairment improvements with demonstration of advanced ability, control, and reaction. These are signs that the body can adjust to prevent falls. This impairment improvement correlated with a 15% increase in balance scores.
- Postural sway area reduced by 37%
- Sway velocity reduced by 15%
- Medio-lateral sway improved 16%
- Anterior-Posterior sway improved 12%

30 Days – 50% Reduction in percentage at Falls Risk
At 30 days residents in senior living have seen a 28.3% balance score improvement that resulted in a 50% reduction in the number of persons at increased risk of falling.
