Abstract

The feasibility and efficacy of home-based, impact exercise are unclear. This pilot impact exercise intervention was feasible and safe, and improved bone health and physical function in postmenopausal women with low bone density. Appropriately designed randomised controlled trials are now required to determine whether such interventions can reduce fracture risk. INTRODUCTION: The feasibility and efficacy of impact exercise in postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density (BMD) are unclear. We aimed to determine adherence, safety and changes in BMD, bone microarchitecture and physical function following a pilot home-based, impact exercise intervention in postmenopausal women with low BMD..
