Introduction and purpose: Balancing is recognized as one of the most important challenges in the aging period. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of dual and single task training on the balance traits of male elderly people.
Materials and methods: Twenty elderly subjects who were available and qualified were selected and randomly divided into two groups of 10, including a walking practice group in dual homework conditions and a single practice group. The dual task team performed a specific cognitive task for each individual while walking, and the other group was practicing routine walking. In the pre-test and post-test phases, the selected kinematic parameters of the selected step were measured using the ZBIS analyzer, which included: step width, step length, dual retention percentage, track, velocity, and velocity changeability. The groups performed exercises for 8 weeks, 3 sessions each 60 minutes a week.
Findings: The results of statistical analysis of repeated measuers ANOVA (2 × 2) with intra-group time (before and after training) and the inter-group type of exercise showed a significant intra-group effect. Also a significant different was found between groups in mentioned parameters More analysis revealed the intra-group effect for dual task group for step length parameters, dual stance time, tracks, speed, and velocity variability (P≤0.05). This effect was not seen on the step width (P> 0.05). Also a significant different was found between groups in mentioned parameters
Conclusion: Walking exercises in dual cognitive situations can improve some of the parameters of the step-up in relation to the balance of male elderly.
