Balance and Fall Prevention
Each year in the United States, millions of people fall, resulting in more than $50 billion in medical costs and even worse, a significant - and often permanent - decrease in quality of life. Falls result from a progressive loss of balance and the neuromuscular inability to react to the loss of balance. 1 “Balanced impairments in older adults are one of the most experienced and reported problems to physicians, and balance and gait disorders are the second leading causes of falls."2 PRĪMFIT™ Solutions footwear and exercise program enhance the neuromuscular reaction response and increase functional strength. The results are both balance improvements as well as reaction time improvements.
