Dual-task Balance Training:
Cognitive Challenge + Physical Exercise
Divided attention is necessary to successfully perform a cognitive and motor tasks (e.g., walking and talking). Reduced ability to dual-task due to aging makes older adults more susceptible to falls when they are distracted.
Dual-task training can improve cognitive bandwidth, and thus the reflexive balance required to avoid a fall when the older adult is distracted. Nymbl’s patented system delivers dual-task training in a fun and engaging way, that significantly improves reflexive balance in 4-8 weeks.
