Participants will engage in a physiotherapist-prescribed home exercise program with ABLE, the interactive technology. The exercises that will be prescribed are designed to improve functional mobility via challenging lower extremity strength and balance in a multicomponent exercise program. The difficulty of each exercise will be chosen at the discretion of the physiotherapist based on the participants' performance on the baseline assessments. The exercises will be prescribed at a moderate intensity (moderate balance challenge, 8-12 repetitions for strength exercises with the last few repetitions being challenging) and will be progressed over the study duration to ensure they remain a moderate challenge.
Behavioral: ABLE - exercise with interactive technology
Multicomponent exercise with interactive technology - consists of wearable sensors and a screen displaying interaction. When the person does the exercises it produces an arts-based response on the screen (e.g., digital painting).,
- Recruitment [ Time Frame: One year ]The number of participants recruited over one year.
- Retention [ Time Frame: Three months ]The number of participants who complete visit 4.
- Adherence [ Time Frame: Three months ]The number of days per week that participants complete the home exercise program.
- Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) [ Time Frame: Three months ]The SPPB is a measure of lower extremity function through measures of balance (timed static stance in feet together, semi-tandem and tandem with eyes open), gait speed, and the time to rise from a chair
- Balance Outcome Measure for Elder Rehabilitation (BOOMER) [ Time Frame: Three months ]The BOOMER is a measure of static and dynamic balance
- International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) [ Time Frame: Three months ]The IPAQ is a self-report measure of time spent (e.g., duration per session, and number of session in the past 7 days) in strength training, yoga/Tai Chi/other balance activities, vigorous physical activity, moderate physical activity, walking, and sitting/lying down while awake
- Self-reported falls as reported in daily diary [ Time Frame: Three months ]A slip or a trip where the person loses their balance and part or all of their body lands on the ground, floor, or lower level
- Participant feedback [ Time Frame: Three months ]Participants and their caregivers (if they assisted with the intervention) will provide their feedback on the technology and participation in the pilot study via one-on-one qualitative interviews completed during the last study visit.
