For the past 12 weeks, our Exercise Physiologist, Cass, has been conducting classes at IRT. Classes focus on improving the strength, balance and mobility of the elderly residents alongside some games to get everyone involved and socialising!
Basic testing was conducted at 0, 6 and 12 weeks with the assistance of our trainers Reece and Josh. The program was a great success with the group achieving on average
-An 81% increase in lower limb strength
-A 37.5% increase in static balance
-13.75% increase in walking balance
-A 10% improvement in grip strength
-Decreased blood pressure
