Abstract: Introduction: The aging process causes losses that lead to decreased balance, gait speed and functional capacity and, therefore, there is a need of specific protocols to work preventively these variables, which will contribute to the decrease in the frequency of falls in this population. Objective: Verify the effect of a program of multisensory and closed kinetic chain exercises on the functional capacity and balance in elderly women. Methods: Randomized clinical trial masked (blind). Subjects were 32 elderl… Show more

“…With regard to interventions that help prevent the risk of falls, ballroom dancing (23) and physical exercises (21,26,27,28,29,32,34,35) took place. Dance practitioners showed greater balance and, consequently, smaller risk in falls.…”

“…In this Integrative Review, it was found that the application of the Berg Scale was varied, however, there was a predominance of execution in the community (18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42), coexistence center (18,19,31,34), school clinic of Physical Therapy in the community (20,24,29,30,33), Primary Health Care.…”

“…Furthermore, this type of exercise enhances the production of functional movements of the lower limb through concentric and eccentric contractions of the muscles involved in the joint movements of the hip, knee, and ankle that are commonly performed during daily activities [ 7 ]. Additionally, it was reported that the CKC exercises are able to improve the physical function of the elderly, allowing them to be more independent [ 8 ]. A positive factor that stands out is the contribution of these types of exercises to an improvement in bodily awareness that is reflected in body positioning control during activities and also helps with postural control [ 30 ].…”

“…In addition to muscular co-activity, these exercises also load non-contractile soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, and joint capsules. Therefore, they improve muscular strength and power, stability, balance, and synergy in functional loading positions [ 8 ].…”

“…In this context, the regular practice of physical activities causes several benefits to older individuals, among them increased aerobic capacity, improved muscle strength and flexibility, improved balance and coordination. In the perspective of the aspects involved in the aging process, the human balance has been investigated in several studies in the literature [4]. The balance depends on three perceptive systems: vestibular, proprioceptive and visual [5].…”
