Abstract: Objectives To determine whether the fall-resisting skills acquired from a single perturbation training session can be retained for 6-months or enhanced by an intermediate ancillary session. Design A randomized controlled trial. Setting Biomechanics research laboratory. Participants Forty-eight community-dwelling elderly (>65 years). Intervention Initial perturbation training applied to all subjects using low-friction platforms to induce, unannounced blocks of repeated right-side slips, interspersed wit… Show more

“…also investigated the effect of experiencing a single slip perturbation 3 months after a perturbation session on retention at 6 months 45. Their results show that such a “booster” session helped participants to retain improvements in reactive balance control 45. These findings are potentially important for clinical practice, as they show that after an initial training period, long‐term retention of the benefits of PBT is possible and can be enhanced with short additional sessions.…”

“…Previous studies reported that both healthy older adults and patients with Parkinson's disease, after experiencing a single session of perturbations, showed at least partial retention of reactive balance control improvements over short periods of 24 h 27, 38. Studies with healthy older adults have also shown retention over longer periods of 6,45, 46 9 and 12 months46 in laboratory settings. Retention in compensatory step length has also been shown in patients with Parkinson's up to 2 months after a 2‐week long PBT intervention 47.…”
