From the community focus groups reported the preferred format and timeframe of a balance resource as a 15 min DVD. The content was identified as needing to cover the importance of balance exercises that range in fitness levels, safety information, and include a voice over of step-by-step exercise technique. The messaging needed to be positive and the balance exercises should be able to be incorporated into daily routines and exercise programs. The preferred video setting was a home environment and the cast was favoured to be relatable and use ‘everyday people’. To best meet the needs of older adults, the Build Your Balance Exercise Video needs to be relatable, easily incorporated into daily routines and appropriate to complete independently.
