Abstract:

This study investigated the effects of balance training on muscle endurance and balance performance in elderly men. 30 elderly men (age 70.5±9.8 yrs) participated in present study. The static balance was evaluated by Tandem stance test. Using wall Scott test, the endurance of the lower extremities’ muscles was measured. The experimental group underwent eight weeks balance training. The control groups did not participate in any training program. The evaluations were repeated after the treatment sessions. Within group comparisons was carried out by paired t-tests, where between groups comparisons was performed by t test for independent samples. After balance training the ability of older men in balance control was significantly improved compared with control group. There was no significant difference in the muscle endurance (p=0.9). Balance training improved balance performance in the older men. This method is recommended for elderly rehabilitation.
