Case Study: Health Innovation

A novel and innovative health promotion exercise intervention, uniquely developed by a national team of researchers and led by Northumbria University, has been used to reduce fear of falling and improve quality of life in older people with impairments such as low vision. This is the first time that such an intervention has been developed specifically for this group, with visually impaired older people themselves helping to design and adapt the intervention. Due to its success, the programme has now become standard practice within the NHS and community and is informing national policy.
