Comparison of static balance in active and inactive adult and elderly men
ObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to compare the static balance in active and inactive adult and elderly men.
Material And Methods55 active adult and elderly men and 49 inactive adult and elderly men participated in this cross sectional- comparative study. Static balance was measured by stork stand test with opened and closed eye. Gait velocity (time) in active subjects was measured used Rockport walk test. Independent T-test was used to compare balance with opened and closed eye between two groups. To examine correlation between static balance with age and gait velocity، Pearson correlation coefficient was used. Statistical analysis was performed using spss-16 software package.
ResultsThe results showed that balance with opened and closed eye were significantly higher in active subjects and inactive active subjects. In active subjects، there was no significant correlation between gait velocity and balance with opened and closed eye. There was significant negative correlation between static balance and age، as with increase age static balance decrease significantly.
ConclusionThe results indicated that active (walking and Morning sports-based) adult and elderly men have better static balance than inactive adult and elderly men، as a result of using walking training program. It is possible that walking with the overload on information transfer through Improve somatosensory systems، May improve the balance.
