Eurhythmics may cut risk of falls
Elderly people in a new study cut their risk of falling by more than half after they took classes in eurythmics, an exercise-and-music program designed for young children.
The 12-month trial recruited 134 people, average age 75, who were unsteady on their feet. Half were randomly assigned to weekly, hourlong eurhythmics classes for the full year, and the other half for just the last six months.
