BSBB is a beginner-level fall prevention exercise and education program that takes place for one hour, twice a week, over 12 weeks.
15) Although BSBB focused on physical activity, it was an expectation of the funding that the program also address the broader known fall prevention behaviours, such as annual medication reviews, vision checks and removal of home hazards.
Although BSBB was intended to be universal in nature, an equity lens was applied to ensure participation barriers were addressed for vulnerable older adults residing in Ottawa.
The partners capitalized on this existing relationship to implement BSBB as per the funding and time requirements.
Green strength - For equivalent compound viscosity the green strength of the BSBB 38 compound is about 20% greater than the compound with the low Mooney polymer.
Relaxation - On the average, BSBB 38 relaxes about 20% faster than BIIR 32.
Extrusion rate - On the average, BSBB 38 has an equivalent extrusion rate to that of the low viscosity bromobutyl and is about 20% faster than the high viscosity polymer.
