Research shows that falls happen when we are distracted, not when we are focused¹. Nymbl helps prepare you for these real-life experiences and distractions by combining simple body movements (that you normally do in your daily routine, such as lifting your foot over a rug) with brain games (like trivia) to challenge your body and mind at the same time.
