FallProof!™ classes are taught by certified instructors who undergo rigorous training, and are required to complete ongoing certification requirements. FallProof!™ includes pre and post assessments to determine an individual’s fall risk prior to taking the class and one’s level of improvement after taking the class.
|“A few words on this balance therapy — I’ve had balance problems for the last 50 years. However, falling at 20 is quite different from falling at 70. So when HHSC had a balance session with Pat Backe in their silent auction, I bid and won. Perhaps, I had an advantage because the session was at her home studio off Franconia Road. I’ve been going to Pat for over a year now. She has done great work according to those who have seen my clumsiness in the past and my steadiness now.”Gerry|
