Regular balance and strength exercises are vitally important for older people if they want to stay fit, mobile and independent into advanced old age. The Swiss Council for Accident Prevention, Pro Senectute Switzerland, the Swiss Foundation for the Promotion of Health, the Swiss Rheumatism Association and physioswiss are hoping to motivate older people to take regular exercise through the “Stand safe – walk safe” campaign.
