Strength and Balance Exercise Programme - Botwell Library
The Otago Strength and Balance programme is designed specifically to prevent falls. The programme consists of:
- a set of muscle strengthening and balance retraining exercises
- exercises that are individually prescribed and increase in difficulty
- standing exercises, so it is important that the participant can sit to stand unaided and walk with or without a walking aid.
The sessions are free with a minimum 12 weeks attendence and a possible option to extend at the end of the programme.
There will be no strength and balance exercise programme sessions during the summer holiday period (Monday 14 August to Friday 1 September).
