Surface Challenge 5

One of the major problems for elderly people is falling. These accidents often happen because the elderly person is not able to overcome or react to minor changes in the surface. The surface challenge gives the opportunity to, under safe conditions, train to overcome typical obstacles found in nature and urban environments. Some of the challenges here focuses on the important toe-lift. Either on small obstacles or bigger ones like the curb. Other challenges focuses on ankle- and overall foot control. Finally, the different surfaces and materials stimulates sensory feedback which also enhances gait stability.
