Self Improving Takes Moving
Exercising is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. That’s even more true as you age, because the right exercises can strengthen your body and help prevent injury-causing falls.
Falling is the leading cause of fatal injury among older adults. One in three seniors fall each year. Serious injuries result from a shocking one in five falls. Even worse, every 20 minutes an older adult dies from a fall.
Other impacts are more subtle. Many people who fall lose confidence, and begin to scale back activities and stay closer to home. Ironically, that inactivity contributes to muscle weakness, and actually increases the risk of falling.
People fall due to issues with balance and gait. This is followed closely by lower body weakness. As your lower body weakens, your chance of falling increases fourfold.
MyNotifi is a fall detection device. Attached to a belt or worn on your wrist, it detects falls and sends notifications to a personalized list of family, neighbors or friends. But it does more than that. The MyNotifi app comes pre-programmed with 38 exercises specifically designed for strength, balance, gait, and range of motion. All of these can help mitigate a potential fall. Let MyNotifi help you with your exercise progress and keep you moving.
