Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of repeated ball targeting exercise on cognition function and motor control in healthy women according to different age ranges. A total of 30 healthy women were assigned to 5 different groups according to their age range. The cognitive test, joint position sense (JPS), and the handgrip strength test were performed before and after the training. One-way ANOVA was used to com- pare the between-group differences and the Paired-t-test was used to evaluate the pre-post changes within groups. As the result, cognition function scores and JPS error rates showed significant differences before and after the intervention (p<0.05). However, there was no significant difference in handgrip strength before and after the experiment (p>0.05). We observed a clear difference in the mean cognitive score and JPS between the different age ranges. Statistically significant differences were observed between the 20s and 60s, 30s, and 60sin the cognitive function scores, and the error rates of JPS angles showed a decreased angle in the 60s compared to the 20s. We can affirm that there is a positive correlation between physical exercise, cogni- tive function, and proprioception in elderly people.
