BACKGROUND This study is intended to find out the effect of aging on postural sway in older individuals. While performing ADL activities, requires performing more than one task simultaneously. In this study we are comparing between two population adults and geriatric. As the age increases, because of the degenerative changes balance decreases. METHODOLOGY In this study, standing posture is used for balance examination with the use of balance master. Healthy young and older individuals are taken for examination and on balance master, postural sway was measured. Sensamove balance master has (0.510 0.815) intraclass correlation coefficient reliability and (0.535 0.705) pearson correlation coefficient validity as compared to gold standard force plate. RESULT This study showed balance performances, in adults 97.25 % and in geriatric 88 % in standing task, 91.75 % in adults, front deviation was 0.13 and in geriatric, 0.67, in adults, back deviation was0.27 and in geriatric, it was 0.65, in adults, right deviation was 0.14 and in geriatric, it was 0.76, in adults, left deviation was 0.18 and in geriatric, it was 0.58.
