Aim: To explore the effectiveness of home-based exercise programs with e-devices (HEPEs) on falls among

community-dwelling older adults. Methods: Twelve randomized controlled trials were included in the

meta-analysis considering four fall-related outcomes. Results: HEPEs significantly reduced the rate of falls

(risk ratio: 0.82; 95% CI: 0.72–0.95; p = 0.006) and improved lower extremity strength (mean difference:

-0.94; 95% CI: -1.71 to -0.47; p < 0.001). There was a significant improvement favoring HEPEs on balance

if the participants were aged >75 years (mean difference: -0.55; 95% CI: -1.05 to -0.05; p = 0.03), or the

intervention duration was at least 16 weeks (mean difference: -0.81; 95% CI: -1.58 to -0.05; p = 0.04).

Conclusion: HEPEs demonstrated an overall positive effect on falls among community-dwelling older

adults.
