RIPPS Balance Method CEU Seminar

Fall Risk Assessment and Balance Intervention


Evidence-based and clinically proven, the RIPPS Balance Method has been approved for 3 and 1.5 contact hour CEUs by the NYPTA.

Course Title: RIPPS (Repeated Incremental Predictable Perturbations) Balance Method: Fall Risk Assessment and Balance Intervention; Blending Research with Clinical Practice

Overview: Falls represent a growing public epidemic in the older adult population. Available balance-related performance measures display ceiling effects with poor responsiveness, sensitivity and poor discriminant validity to fall status at upper performance levels, unable to quantify or detect balance deficits in the active older adults. Clinically developed and validated on an active older adult population, the RIPPS Method is a reliable, evidence-based, safe and innovative balance assessment method. Balance deficits and postural responses are quantified and documented utilizing the RIPPS Method percent of total body weight (%TBW) performance measure.

This course will describe the RIPPS Method and the RIPPS percent of total body weight performance measure (%TBW). RIPPS assessment interpretations and treatment applications are presented with other balance intervention options.

This course will consist of lecture, demonstration and discussion and will focus on:

  • RIPPS evidence-based foundations
  • RIPPS Method instruction
  • Perturbation neurophysiologic foundations
  • RIPPS applications
