What's Happening Now

The Virtual Group Exercise at Home (V-GEAH) randomized controlled trial, funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), was completed. The results of the V-GEAH study was published in the Gerontology and Geriatrics: Research in summer 2016.

Barbara, a participant in the trail study, walks for 45 minutes everyday with John (who joined her walking) in her apartment community room. She also does Tai-chi and a group exercise once a week, and still does the Week 24 exercise (last V-GEAH exercise) almost every day using ankle weights.
