Introduction: Falling is considered one of the most common problems of aging. Researchers believe that reducing the balance is - the main factor in falling the elderly. In this regard, the present study aims to comparison of the effectiveness of 8-week UF combined field training and tele-exercise program on static and dynamic equilibrium parameters of the ederly Man -
Method: This semi-experimental study was conducted in Isfahan, sixty healthy elderly men, aged 60-70 years old, had the ability to perform exercise activities, were selected through purposeful sampling and randomly divided into two experimental (field and tele-exercise) and control groups. Both experimental groups received intervention, exercise program sessions for 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week, and 90 minutes each session. A training program based on the UF training system was designed and implemented. Parameters related to static and dynamic balance were evaluated through a motion analysis device with seven cameras. For initial evaluations, a researcher-made questionnaire and a Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) were used. Descriptive statistics were used for data analysis and their homogeneity and ANOVA for repeated measurements were used to analyze the data.  SPSS version 24 was also used to perform statistical processes.
Results: The results showed that all three experimental and field experiments (tele-exercise) and control with age (P = 0.26), height (P = 0.08), body weight (P= 0/92), body weight index (P = 0.95), fitness fitness index (P = 0/43), mental health index (P= 0/54), and general health (P = 0/63 = 0) are homologous. The use of a combination exercise program as a tele- exercise and field exercise significantly increased some of the static balance parameters such as COP Excursion AP(P= 0/023) and ML(P= 0/019), Path Length AP(P= 0/001) and ML(P= 0/001), COP Velocity AP(P= 0/001) and ML(P= 0/001) have a significant difference(P<0.05), This case was also obtained in the internal-external stability of the step width, which is one of the dynamic balance parameters(P<0.05). However, in the same period, in the group that did not practice the exercise program, there was no significant change in any of the parameters of static and dynamic balance (P>0.05).
Conclusion: Regarding the findings of the research, It can be deduced that regular and continuous use of a 8-week combined exercise program such as Tele-exercise and field exercise can be considered as a good alternative to field training programs due to the improvement of static and dynamic balance parameters. Meanwhile, Tele-exercises seem to be more effective for the elderly age group because of the reduction of dangers outside the home and placement in matched groups, and pave the way for healthy aging and healthy living in this period of life.
