HUR Health and Fitness Equipment partners with posture institute

HUR Health and Fitness Equipment has entered a partnership with the National Posture Institute to promote a certificate program.

HUR's equipment will be used in different certificate programs by NPI, in video format. The partnership will promote independence, posture, mobility, fall prevention and incontinence reduction among older adults.

“Falling is number 1 reason for injury deaths for older adults. Actually, every third American over 65 years old falls each year costing over $20 billion to our economy,"  said Juha Vaisanen, president of HUR Health and Fitness Equipment. "We look forward to working with NPI to provide superior solutions and educational services for senior housing communities and medical fitness centers to reduce falls and their consequences."
