The relationship between anthropometric characteristics with balance in non-Athlete old females was aims of this article. The current research is a quasi-experimental study. The research project is pretest posttest and application of independent variable. 150 questionnaires were distributed among old female volunteers and from the individuals who had the required conditions to participate in the study 36 individuals were chosen as the research sample. The examinees’ balance was measured by the use of Berg Balance Scale (BBS) (measuring the balance function based on 14 items used in daily life). Descriptive statistics was used for calculating mean and standard deviation of age, height, and weight of examinees and also the achieved scores in BBS. Pearson's correlation coefficient was used to assess the correlations between the variables (Balance). The results showed, that there is significant and negative relationship between weight and balance rate. There is significant and negative relationship between height and balance rate of non-athlete old females. There isn't significant relationship between age and balance rate of non-athlete old females.Pages: 120-122 | 1358 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
