Nymbl and the “Longevity Economy” featured on Colorado Public Radio

We were honored today to be guests on “Colorado Matters” along with Karen Brown from Aging 2.0 in a segment on entrepreneuring for seniors. It’s great to see that more and more companies are seeing that you can do well and do good by meeting the needs of seniors.

The segment can be heard on cpr.org.

Big thanks to Karen for including us and Nell London and Ryan Warner at CPR for putting together the segment.

Nymbl Participates in Boulder Falls Prevention Week!

Nathan Estrada, Nymbl Director of Sales and Markets, presented to a great audience today during a community event for Boulder Falls Prevention week at the East Boulder Community Center.

It was really a superb opportunity to talk about the science behind falls prevention, demonstrate how the science can now be effective in a smartphone application, and interact with seniors who were interested in falls prevention.

We are always interested in participating in community events about balance and falls prevention, feel free to contact us if you’d have an event you’d like us to participate in!

Announcing Nymbl Training App 2.0!

We are pleased to announce the imminent availability of the Nymbl Training App 2.0!  This is a major release that includes many new exercises and dual tasking challenges, more efficient promotion of users from one level to another, plus (drum roll) availability on the Android platform!

Here’s more on each new feature:

  • Coach Mode moved to the Nymbl Class App
    Recognizing that Nymbl Coaches have different needs than Nymbl users at home, we have split one app into two.  If you are a coach, you will want to be sure you have the Class app as well as the new Nymbl Pro App.

  • Updated Senior Track Program
    The 2.0 Training app  has two big changes to the previous Senior Track Program:

    • Additional Training levels. The Senior Track Program now goes up to Week 36.
    • All of the Training Levels of the Senior Track now have cognitive dual task exercises so that all training engages the brain in multipleways.

Nymbl demonstrates significant improvement in stability in just 21 days

In a research study conducted by the MSk lab at Imperial College London and presented recently at the 8th World Congress of Biomechanics conference, Nymbl was shown to significantly improve stability in just 21 days. Sway improvements measured were:

Postural sway area reduced 37%
Sway velocity  reduced 15%
Medio-lateral sway improved 16%
Anterior-posterior sway improved 12%.

This impairment improvement correlated with 15% improvement in balance and an 82% engagement rate during the 21 days.

The study will continue to show improvement over time, but we are thrilled that we continue to accumulate scientific verification of our balance improvement system!
