Background. Recent studies have shown that the risk of falling increases when people are getting older. In daily work of a physiotherapist, the percentage of older patients is growing. One important factor is due to a higher risk of falling of older people. Objective. This study assessed the effect of MFT-training on gait speed and balance in community-dwelling elderly people living at home. Intervention. We examined the effect of a three week home program. One training session lasted 20 minutes including exercises just on the MFT-disc. The study participants were four older adults between 65 and 75 years of age. After instruction they exercised by themselves. Measurements. Measures of activity were recorded before and after the intervention. Gait speed was measured with 10m-walking-test, balance determined with single-leg-standing-tests and Foam and Dome-test. Results. Gait speed improved in the 10m-walking-test, Furthermore improvements can be detected in single-leg-standing and in sections of Foam and Dome-test. Limitations. A small sample size and lack of blinding might be laminating factors. Conclusion. Based on our results, we suggest that the MFT-Training may be useful for reducing the risk of falling among the elderly.
