Abstract

 Balance is a complex motor skill that describes body posture dynamic to prevent to fall. The aim of this study was to determine the RELIABILITY of functional balance tests (static, semi-dynamic and dynamic) in ectomorph young women (24-34 years old). 25 ectomorph women (mean age 26.00±1.51yr, height 166.9±1.14 cm and weight 46.99±3.27 kg) participated in this study. The subjects' balance was assessed by STATIC BALANCE (BESS, Romberg, Stork and Angle), semi-dynamic (Star excursion) and dynamic (time to get up and go and tandem walking) functional tests while Heath- Carter approach was applied to determine the somatotype. Each functional balance test was used for each subject in three sessions with 72 hours of rest interval. The normality of data distribution was evaluated by Kolmogorov- Smirnov test while ICC was used to assess the RELIABILITY of the tests at P£0.05. To assess STATIC BALANCE, BESS at the stable level with a leg upward and tandem positions, BESS at the unstable level with a leg upward position, Stork, Angle at the stable level in dominant leg with open eyes and non- dominant leg with open and closed eyes, Angle at the unstable level in the dominant leg with open and closed eyes and to assess semi-DYNAMIC BALANCE, Star excursion test and to assess DYNAMIC BALANCE, time to get up and go test that attained a very good RELIABILITY (ICC>0.80) were recommended. The RELIABILITY of the BESS STATIC BALANCE test at the unstable level in paired foot and tandem positions, Romberg, Angle at the stable level with the dominant leg and closed eyes, Angle at the unstable level with non-dominant leg and closed eyes and tandem walking DYNAMIC BALANCE test with ectomorph somatotype was not confirmed, so it can be stated that the RELIABILITY of these tests is affected by somatotype. The researchers are recommended to apply reliable and valid tests to assess the balance with regard to the somatotype.
