This study showed the number of bedridden elderly residents of Tokushima and Naruto Cities. In addition, we developed a therapeutic physical exercise named“Awa Odori Dance for Rehabilitation”, which allowed elderly aged 65 years or over to improve their physical fitness and anxiety about falling down.
