The Science

Nymbl builds on a strong foundation of science to deliver meaningful improvement in balance. At the center of this foundation is dual-tasking – a clinically-proven approach. Nymbl delivers this well-known balance improvement mechanism at much larger scope through digital delivery and intelligent adaptive algorithms, tuning the experience for each individual user.

Reduction of Sway at 21 Days

A person’s sway measurements, particularly postural sway area and sway velocity directly relate to their balance and fall risk. 

At 21 days of Nymbl participation: 

  • Postural sway area reduced by 37%
  • Sway velocity reduced by 15%
  • Medio-lateral sway improved 16%
  • Anterior-Posterior sway improved 12%

Significant Reduction of Individuals at High Risk of Falling

 At 30 days of use, half of the engaged Nymbl users that started in the “high risk” of falls category (per STEADI assessment measures) moved out of the “high risk” category – these users successfully transitioned from being considered a faller to being a non-faller.
