We are pleased to share the next phase of our validation with our peer-reviewed study, published by BMJ Open, recognizing Nymbl’s validated outcomes through our feasible, at-home digital balance training for older adults. The study included participants aged 55+ with access to a smartphone or tablet, & assessed their postural sway.
A Snapshot of Our Results:
After only 3 weeks’ use of Nymbl’s balance training app, participants’ postural sway significantly improved. After retesting, nearly 50% of participants reported supplemental benefits in addition to improved balance after using Nymbl, including muscle strength & confidence, a huge success for participants. Participants demonstrated high adherence to Nymbl’s balance training app, also showing the effectiveness of its easy-to-follow instructions; so much so that 77% of participants considered Nymbl’s app to be an appropriate balance training tool, & 88% found it easy to fit into their daily routine.
Nymbl’s Impact on Older Adults:
Nymbl is proud to be on the path to becoming the gold-standard intervention for digital balance training. Our scientifically proven app delivers engaging cognitive & physical exercises to older adults in ways that resonate with their unique needs – helping them successfully age in place. Today’s COVID-19 crisis has made Nymbl all the more important as older adults are isolated at home with impaired balance after months of inactivity. Nymbl is continuously improving older adults’ balance & helping instill the confidence older adults need to make healthy changes to prevent falls.
