Mid, West, East and Exeter Evidence Based Strength and Balance Classes

Evidence based strength and balance classes, which have been shown to reduce your risk of falling are being rolled out into the community. These will be tailored to your needs and include assessments so you can see the improvements you’ve made. The classes are free for at least 6 weeks.

If you have fallen over, have poor balance or are worried about falling these classes have been designed for you.

You need to be able to;

  • Walk with no physical assistance, but can use a walking aid
  • Get up from a low-ish chair/toilet without assistance, its okay if you find this difficult.
  • Follow instructions

You can self refer to these classes, so you do not need a healthcare referral. The instructor will check that the classes are suitable for you with an assessment. The instructors work closely with the community rehabilitation teams and will discuss the best option for you if their class isn’t appropriate. The classes take people throughout the year.
