Abstract

This study aims to determine the relationship between quadriceps femoris muscle strength with postural level of balance in the elderly. The researchers used a manual muscle testing (MMT) tool for the quadriceps femoris muscle strength component, and on the postural equilibrium component using a tinetti balance test. Subjects studied were elderly aged 60 and above members of the Association of Elderly Mawar Indah Banaran Pabelan and PWRI Wedha Tama Kartasura branch who entered the criteria of inclusion and did not enter exclusion criteria. Objective: The research used cross sectional approach which is done by observation to the sample. The data were collected using total sampling technique from population of 60 people, and considering inclusion and exclusion criteria so that 39 samples were obtained. The test used is nonparametric correlations spearman's rho with equivalence degree 0,05. Results: it can be said the test results are significant. Conclusion: This means that from this study proved a strong relationship between quadriceps femoris muscle strength with postural level of balance in the elderly
