Alzheimer's disease is an epidemic that seriously affects cognition, mood, and daily activities. One of the most common and serious consequences of aging is falling and falling, so interventions are important for this purpose. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of eight weeks of DNS training on balance and motor function in patients with dementia or cognitive and memory disorders.

For this purpose, 30 patients with dementia, one to three stitches were selected and divided into two groups, DNS exercise and control group (15 in each group). The DNS training group performed their respective training sessions for 8 weeks and 3 sessions per week. TUG equilibrium test, and walking speed, step width and step length tests were taken at pre-test and post-test. To test and analyze datum, also analysis, t-test and ANCOVA statistical method was used via SPSS21 software.
Paired t-test showed that there was a significant difference between pre-test and post-test only in DNS training group (P <0.05). But this difference was not significant in the control group (P <0.05). Also, the results of covariance analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the two groups in post-test in all variables (P <0.05). Was.
Based on the results, I conclude that DNS exercises can improve balance and kinematic gait parameters (step width, step length, and walking speed), and coaches and experts can use these exercises to improve balance, walking speed, Use step length and stride length for people with Alzheimer's disease.
