, Vaugoyeau, Nougier, & Assaiante, 2010 ). Among several mobility tests, the timed up and go test (TUGT) is a useful tool for gait, balance, and risk of falls assessment ( Alexandre, Meira, Rico, & Mizuta, 2012 ). Gillain et al. ( 2009 ) found differences in TUGT (total performance) when using triaxial

With the high prevalence of debilitating injuries associated with accidental falls in senior citizens, the need for clinicians to have valid and reliable methods of risk assessment that can be administered efficiently at low financial cost is important. The Timed Up and Go (TUG) test has been

investigated the performance of balance (i.e., yoga or tandem exercises; Kenny et al., 2010 ; Taylor et al., 2012 ; Wolf et al., 1996 ) or endurance training ( Ehsani et al., 2003 ) alone showed significant effects only in rate of falls (47–58%), balance (4% in Timed Up and Go [TUG]), and cardiorespiratory

community-dwelling older adults. The timed up and go (TUG) and 5 times sit-to-stand (5×STS) scores are 2 of the 3 most evidence-supported performance-based measures for assessing fall risk in community-based older adults. 3 TUG performance is predictive of fall history and future falls in older adults. 18

, static balance equilibrium is concluded to be unbalanced. Static balance measurements were repeated at weeks 0, 12, and 24 for each patient group. Dynamic balance measurements The Timed Up and Go (TUG) Test and Berg Balance Scale (BBS) were used in dynamic balance assessment. Patients were seated on a
