Just six months of piano practice can reduce the risk of falling in the elderly, according to a new study by Swiss scientists. The study included 134 elderly volunteers, some of whom, at the request of the research team, played the piano once a week for about an hour for six months. After half a year, experts found that people who play the piano not only have better coordination, but also better motor skills compared to the control group. Experts estimate that the risk of loss of balance and subsequent falls, fatal for the elderly, is reduced by 54 points. According to them, playing the piano maintains confidence while moving, which is essential for maintaining balance and avoiding fatal staggers and accidents.
