Balance is the ability of an individual to maintain the body's center of gravity over the base of support. Static balance is measured when the base of support is stationary and is typically evaluated via postural sway measures. (1) Theraband can last for a long time proper care and use, thus acting as a commercial way for rehabilitation. Theraband has been tested in laboratory setting above 10, 000 repetitions without any rupture. (6) Aerobic training has been shown to have a positive effect on discrete psychomotor skills in elderly people, but the effect of aerobic training on continuous psychomotor skills is unknown. (7) Thus the purpose of the study is to compare the effect of Theraband exercises and aerobic exercise in community dwelling elderly.30 subjects were selected. Patients were evaluated using an assessment form, Time up and Go test and Berg balance scale and patients were informed about the procedure, merits and demerits of the treatment. consent form is obtained from each patients for voluntary participation. The intra-group analysis showed that both the treatments are effective in terms of average reduction in the value of measure ?TUG? and in terms of average improvement in the value of measure ?BBS?. However, the inter-group analysis showed that Treatment A is effective than Treatment B in terms of average reduction in value of TUG score and in terms of average improvement in the value of BBS. Hence, we conclude that Treatment A is effective than Treatment B in terms of both the measures ? TUG & BBS.
