Background: Duetothefactthatimbalance and nervous-muscular poor performancearethemainfactorsofelders’falling,researchers areinterested in its rehabilitation and balance. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of neurofeedback on static and dynamic balance in older men.

Methods: This study was a quasi-experimental study consisting of a pre-test and post-test measurements in both control and experimental groups (each n= 15). Statistical population of study was Tabriz elders refered in one of Tabriz parks (Pamchal) and statistical sample of 30 persons was selected from the applicants. Static and dynamic balance was measured using Sharpened Romberg Test, standing, and walking before and after the neurofeedback training sessions for 30 minutes in 10 sessions for 5 weeks and two sessions at each week. Data were analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistical tests in SSPP.v20 software environment

Results: Our results showed that static and dynamic balance time after Neurofeedback training in pre-test and post-test has significant difference in experimental group. respectiely P=0.013 and P=0.003 But static and dynamic balance time in control group don’t have significant difference in pre-test and post-test (P>0.05). The dynamic equilibrium time before neurofeedback training was (10.696 ±2.758) and after neurofeedback training equals to  8.528 ±2.198  and static balance time before neurofeedback training equals to 51.122 ±1.560 and after neurofeedback training was 56.245±1.085

Conclusion: The results show that neurofeedback training haseffecton elders’ static and dynamic balance. These types of trainings were used to improve elders’ balance in aging periods or elders’ care centers that are major factors in aging periods.
