Abstract: 
Objective: The purpose of current study was to compare the effect of aging on balance in different sensory conditions.
Materials and Methods: In this cross sectional study we compared 20 healthy youth (with age 22.75 or2.29) and 20 healthy older adults (with age 65.1 or4.16) in single leg standing in different sensory conditions. Sensory conditions were open eye/ hard surface (OEHS), closed eye/ hard surface (CEHS), closed eye/ foam surface (CEFS) as balance tasks. One-way ANOVA, paired t-test and Independent Sample t- test were used.
Results: findings showed significant difference between youth and older adults in all three sensory conditions. In addition, in each group, there was significant difference between OEHS and CEHS/ CEFS. Hence, significant difference was seen between CEHS and CEFS in each group.
Conclusion: based of our findings sensory information is more critical for balance in elderly than youth. In addition, standing on One-Leg can be used as a proper test for evaluation of older adults.
