A new campaign aims to help older Australians improve leg strength and prevent falls.

Each year, 1 in 3 Australians over the age of 65 will have a fall. Strong legs are important at every age and can help to prevent falls.

The Stay On Your Feet® Strengthen Your Legs campaign from Injury Matters, focuses on simple, enjoyable and low cost options for improving leg strength to prevent slips, trips and falls.

The Strengthen Your Legs animation video (external site) includes practical tips on how to boost leg strength, prevent falls and keep you doing the things you enjoy.
