Aims and objectives: The purpose of the study is to find is there any significance difference between the effects of multisensory exercise on functional mobility and balance between the genders of elderly population. Methodology: 60 elderly subjects were selected between the age groups of 60 to 75 yrs old divided into two groups, Group A- elderly males and group B- elderly females and their functional mobility and balance were assessed with pre test taken by timed up and go test and guralnik battery test after which multisensory exercise were given for thrice a week for 8 weeks after which a post test were taken with the same tests. Results: At the end of the treatment group-A (elderly male) showed a significance improvement in TUG (10.42 2.12 seconds to 8.11 1.69 sec) (F=95.84, p<0.001). and guralnik test battery (9.00 1.29 to 11.39 0.84) (F=37.50, p<0.001). Conclusion: There is a significant difference between the effects of multisensory exercise on functional mobility and balance between the group-A (elderly males) & group-B (elderly females). However multisensory exercise is effective in both the groups but the group -A (elderly males) showed a better performance than group-B (elderly females).
