Abstract: 

Introduction: Aging is a normal stage of human life which osteoarthritis is more often seen in it. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of aquatic training and compare it with Traband training on the most widely used functional tests in old men with knee osteoarthritis.
Methods: The population of the study included all the elderly men with knee osteoarthritis, among which, 36 individuals who randomly divided into three groups of 12 (Traband, Aquatic exercises, and control). The subjects in both groups of Traband and Aquatic exercises performed their group-specific training programs for 6 weeks with a sequence of 4 sessions per week. Three functional tests were used for measuring functional tests. One-way variance analysis test and paired t-test were used for results. A significant level of 0.05 was considered.
Results: Results showed that there are significant differences (P=0.05) between functional tests (stair-climb test, 30 second chair stand, and 8 foot time up and go) between groups (Traband and Aquatic exercises). In addition, in intragroup comparison of the groups (Traband and Aquatic exercises), a significant difference was observed for the measured variables (P=0.05).
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that six weeks Traband and Aquatic exercises can be considered as effective on improving functional tests in old men with knee osteoarthritis.
