OBJECTIVES To determine whether exercise-induced reductions in fall risk are maintained in older women 1 year after the cessation of three types of interventions--resistance training, agility training, and general stretching. DESIGN One-year observational study. SETTING Community. PARTICIPANTS Ninety-eight women aged 75 to 85 with low bone mass. MEASUREMENTS Primary outcome measure was fall risk, measured using the Physiological Profile Assessment tool. Secondary outcome measures were… CONTINUE READING
