Background and Objective: Balance in intellectual disability individuals is very important due to the weakness in performing balance tasks. This study was performed to determine the effect of six weeks of vestibular stimulation exercises on the balance of children with mild intellectual disability.
Methods: In this clinical trial study, 30 intellectual disability boys were randomly divided into control and experimental groups. Subjects in experimental group were receiving vestibular stimulation training for six weeks. No intervention was performed on the subjects in the control group. A single leg test was used to screen the subjects with a balance of weakness. To assessment the static, dynamic and functional Balance, the Bruninks Oseretsky test was used and a Timed Up and Go (TUG) was used, respectively.
Results: After the end of the training period, static balance, dynamic balance and functional balance was significantly increased in experimental group compared to controls (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Six weeks of vestibular stimulation exercises have a positive effect on static, dynamic and functional balance in intellectual disability boys.
