For those of you who braved the weather on Monday and came out to class, we had a little fun with a great app that is available for both iPhone and Android devices.
Clock Yourself is a pre-habilitation app designed to help with balance, prevent falls and engage your brain and body to assist with maintaining our cognitive function as we age. Developed by a physiotherapist, it is a great tool to add to your weekly exercise program.
“The athlete who slips on the sports field and the grandmother who trips in her garden may fall for different reasons, but both could effectively catch themselves with a fast step in the correct direction.
In five stages the Clock Yourself app introduces progressively complex activities to train us to think on our feet and to react quickly with our bodies.
Pre-habilitation is a wise move. Clock Yourself makes it fun!”
Check it out and have some fun!
