What is the Postural Stability Programme- (Falls Prevention)?
Active Leeds offer a structured 20 week Postural Stability Programme of activities for people at the risk of falls. These 'Strength and Balance' sessions are designed to improve strength, balance and co-ordination for people with low mobility. The progressive sessions involve a mixture of chair based exercises and standing strength and balance exercises. Sessions are delivered by qualified instructors in a range of community venues across Leeds. Individuals are assessed at the start and end of the programme to help monitor progress towards increased mobility, strength and balance. After finishing the class there is opportunity for refreshments and social chat.
