Balance in older age: what happens and what can we do about it?

Maintaining balance is essential to successful ageing, but as we get older balance control becomes more difficult. In this talk, we will look at how our senses and our body’s wobble response change as we age which may explain why we start missing vital clues to changes in our environment and body position. We will also look at simple interventions which can improve balance control and consequently reduce our risk of falls.
