Research has shown that exercise programs that include strength, aerobic, and balance components are effective in preventing falls. The “Stay Active and Independent for Life” (SAIL) program is an evidence-based intervention for prevention of falls. The SAIL program includes educational materials and self-assessments as well as a fitness class designed specifically for older adults.
Dr. Chris Towler is a licensed Physical Therapist and board certified Geriatric Specialist. In addition to teaching in the Clarkson PT program, he sees patients in the Canton-Potsdam area, primarily in the home-care setting. Clarkson University Doctor of Physical Therapy students will be working with Chris to present this class.
