|Abstract: ||Introduction: The lack of speed of information processing, balance, strength and agility are seen as determinants factors for falls in older adults. A psychomotor intervention uses the body and ovement as mediators, relying on the prevention of cognitive, sensory, perceptive, emotional and affective deterioration, exploring the neuroplasticity. Therefore, we hypothesized that a multimodal exercise program including sensorimotor and neurocognitive exercises could decrease the risk of falls.
Objectives: The aim of present study is to analyse the impact of a psychomotor exercise program on determinants factors for falls in community-dwelling older adults who were fallers or were at high risk of falling.|
