About

The hypothesis of this study is that participation in the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Bone Builders program 1 hour, twice per week, for 12 weeks may result in significant positive changes to the health status of older adult participants as demonstrated by increased leg strength and walking speed, improved balance and balance confidence, and enhanced life satisfaction. These improvements may lead to a reduction in risk of falls.

Full description

The purpose of this study was to examine the efficacy of the RSVP Bone Builders program, to document benefits this program may have for older adults and also provide additional evidence that further confirms the importance of exercise for the older adult population. Exercise has the potential to reduce falls, injuries, emergency room visits, surgeries, insurance costs, and improve the overall quality of life in the older adult population. If the RSVP Bone Builders proves to be beneficial for older adults, the program could be recommended by healthcare and exercise professionals for their patients and clients who are at risk for falls.
