Keeping Fit in Your Silver Years – Proprioception

The idea of proprioception refers to sense of grasping the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and being aware of the amount of strength of effort being employed in movement. Proprioception helps with improving balance and coordination.

Having good balance and coordination not only helps to prevent the occurrence of falls, but also increases quality of life and daily function. Good balance helps you when bending over to pick up things and make other daily movements more efficient.

In this video, RetroFit‘s in-house functional trainer, Li Hoong demonstrates some simple exercises that can help to improve balance and coordination.
