OTAGO Patient Feedback

NHS Forth Valley

Description

OTAGO which originated in New Zealand, is a muscle strengthening and balance programme designed to help older people reduce their risk of falls in later life.  For the past four years it has been used extensively across Forth Valley in rehabilitation settings, in day care and supported housing schemes for the elderly and, more recently, in leisure facilities. The OTAGO programme has been shown to reduce the number of falls by around a third in the older population.
