Nymbl Science was founded with the mission of using evidenced-based medical science and mobile technology to improve balance and prevent 1 million falls.
Nymbl consists of (1) a comprehensive balance evaluation and (2) a balance improvement program designed to be delivered on the smartphone or in a class.
The Balance Evaluation is a 3-part test administered on a smartphone or tablet that guides the senior through the required tasks in approximately 5 minutes. These tests conform to the CDC STEADI protocol. The Balance Training app is a self-guided or coach-led intervention that delivers appropriate exercises based on the senior’s balance score and provides simultaneous cognitive challenges. This “dual tasking” approach stimulates brain plasticity and mimics real world settings where a user may fall because they become distracted.
