The Six-Step Balance SystemTM is based the book “How to Prevent Falls: Better Balance, Independence and Energy in 6 Simple Steps” by Dr. Betty Perkins-Carpenter, now in its 5th printing.
Dr. Carpenter’s book uses:
- Simple everyday descriptions, not complex technical jargon
- Easy to read large print text preferred by many older adults
- Simple stick figure drawings, not complicated graphics or hard to see photographs
- Easy to remember, simple exercises with fun names like “A Little Necking”, “Elbow Magic”, or “Tap Dance”.
