Better Bones & Balance is based on research from Oregon State University. Study participants who performed balance and strength exercises using weighted vests reduced their rate of hip bone loss and reduced their risk of falls. All of the study participants were post menopausal women.
"Most fractures occur from a fall. If you avoid the fall, chances are you won’t experience a fracture. Because this program targets strength and balance, it has an immediate impact on reducing the risk for falls. The benefits to bone observed among long–term participants are icing on the cake."
