Description: From the Exercise and Physical Activity in Aging Conference (ExPAAC): Blending Research and Practice.

Balance is a critical part of independent function. Impaired balance is a common problem in both geriatric and neurologic populations, and leads to increased risk for falls, loss of functional independence and reduced quality of life.

This presentation will review evidence based exercise prescription to improve balance and reduce falls among older adults and define physical frailty and discuss evidence based exercise training for the amelioration of physical frailty.
