Task-specific balance training improves self-assessed function in community-dwelling older adults with balance deficits and fear of falling: a randomized controlled trial.

Roaldsen KS, Halvarsson A, Sahlström T, Ståhle A - Clin Rehabil (2014)

Bottom Line: Self-perceived function and disability measured with Late Life Function and Disability Instrument.The intervention group reported improvement in overall function (p = 0.016), as well as in basic (p = 0.044) and advanced lower extremity function (p = 0.025) compared with the control group.The study showed no improvement in overall disability or upper extremity function.

Mentions: There were 146 responses to the advertisings. Out of these, 87 did not meet the inclusion criteria, resulting in a total of 59 older adults included in the study. Of these, 38 were randomized to the intervention group and 21 to the control group (Figure 1). Demographic data of the participants are presented in Table 1.
