Bingocize® combines a bingo-like game with exercise and fall prevention education. The program has been shown to increase older adults’ functional fitness, health knowledge, and social engagement.
The program helps older adults to:
- Improve and/or maintain mobility and independence,
- Learn and use health information focused on falls reduction and other health-related behaviors, and
- Socially engage with other older adults.
Participants (Bingocizers©) complete a series of strategically inserted exercises designed to increase or decrease the intensity and volume of exercise. Educational health questions are also included in the game. Participants rest while numbers are called for the bingo game, complete more strategically inserted exercises or health education questions. This pattern is continued until a Bingocizer© wins the game. Additional games are played until all planned exercises are completed or 1 hour elapses.
Length of program: 2 sessions a week, for 10 weeks
