HealthySteps : an Exercise Intervention Study for Seniors Age 65+ with Difficulty Walking

The HealthySteps team will evaluate the effects of exercise on walking ability, fatigue and activity in older adults with mobility limitations. Results from this study may be used to develop programs to promote mobility, prevent disability, and maintain functional autonomy in vulnerable older adults. The HealthySteps study is a pilot study affiliated with Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, and Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, and is funded by the Drummond Foundation.
