Eleven males and 10 females in age group of 66-70 year of age and 4 males and 5 females of 71-75 year of age were randomly divided in three groups, 10 participants each (i) single task group, (ii) motor-motor group, (iii) motor-cognitive group. Balance training was given thrice a week for 2 weeks; duration of each session of training was 20 minutes. The outcome measures were functional reach test, Tinneti score, Berg’s balance scale. There was a significant improvement in balance in all three training groups. Motor cognitive dual task training was found to be the most effective as compared to single task and motor-motor dual task training.
