Purpose : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of exercise using Mai Yued Yoon on health-related physical fitness and movement ability in elderly people.

Methods : The subjects were 65 elderly, aged between 60-75 years, belonging to the elderly school, Non Than Municipality, Muang District, Nong Bua Lamphu Province. The subjects were divided into 2 groups using a simple random method. The control group underwent cloth exercises program (CEP = 32), while the experiment group completed Mai Yued Yoon exercise program (MYE = 33). Exercise program, as a part of learning activities, lasted 30 minutes per day, 3 days a week for 12 weeks. Before and after the training, the health-related physical fitness (HRF) including body composition. vital sign, 6-minute walk test (6WT), arm curl test (ACT), chair sit and standing test (CST), chair sit and reach test (CRT) and back scratch test (BST) and the ability of movement by timed up and go test (TUG) were measured. The dependent variables (pre-test vs. post-test) were compared by Paired t-test. Independent t-test was used to compare the difference between groups. The significantly level was set at p < .05.

Results : After 12 weeks of training, MYE group had significantly lower body composition and blood pressure (p < .05), whereas CRT and BST values were significantly increased in both groups, as compared to pre-test values (p < .05). In addition, 6WT, CST and movement ability, as measured by TUG, were significantly decreased compared to pre-test and CEP group (p < .05).

Conclusion : Exercise program using an elastic wood is more effective for improving the health-related physical fitness and movement ability compare to exercise program with cloth.
