In a nutshell: This randomised controlled trial investigated the effectiveness of modified Sun style tai-chi on preventing falls in community-dwelling older people in Australia. The study could not support the tai-chi as a falls prevention measure among relatively well older people with modified mobility and an increased risk of disability. Low class attendance and lack of intensity of intervention may have contributed to the lack of effect.
