Prevention of fall
Recommended exercise programs and training devices on the prevention of falls.
Falls are omnipresent danger in the life of elder people. The results are often bruises and bone fractures, sometimes even psychological restrictions such as a reduced wilingnessl to move after a fall. Due to old age the physical and psychological capability for performance decline. The handling of dangerous situations, which did not pose a problem at a young age becomes more difficult. The speed of this aging process however can be influenced.
Balance training means also exercising strength and the sensorimotor system at the same time. Explained in a simple way, the sensorimotor system is the interaction between the sensoric (nerve strings) and motoric (muscules, sinew) functions of the human body. If this interaction does not work properly, the danger of falls increases.
Therefore with the instable TOGU platforms, you train your balancing skills and unconsciously along the way your nerve system, reaction capability as well as your deep musculature, which is providing mobility and stability for your joints. This way you gain more movement security.
The 15-minute fall prevention program, which has been developed by Dr. Sommer, physician of the National German Snowboard Team, and which you can download online here, contains such exercises. It can also be performed by untrained people. Through the deployment of specially compiled TOGU device sets the training stimulus is even more intensified. Additional devices, which you will find in this category are also suitable for the application in this field.

The ingenious part of the Healthy Training concept is the ideal combination of perfect training tools and an easy application for the patient. This is supplemented by a unique combination of exercises, which is tailored to the particular needs of curing a specific disease, injury or the desire to reduce weight. This way training from young to old age is possible.
