Summary note:
"The second edition of FallProof! continues to be the only text to address the multiple dimensions that contribute to balance and mobility. By exploring the reasons underlying falls, readers gain the knowledge to offer more comprehensive assessment and programming. This research-based approach is field tested and has shown considerable success in a range of instructional settings, including community-based and residential care environments." "Now packaged with a DVD, this second edition makes the information in the text applicable to real situations. The bound-in DVD shows how to administer key screening and assessment tests, demonstrates selected exercise progressions for the major program modules, and features a sample FallProof! class session in action."--BOOK JACKET.
