Objectives The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between self-regulation and balance confidence among the active and in-active elderly in the city of Mahabad.
Methods & Materials The cross-correlational research included elderly people aged 60 to 85 years and living in Mahabad city. A total of 93 active elderly and 93 in-active elderly were randomly selected as sample. The Balance Confidence questionnaire and Self-Regulation questionnaire were used to gather data. The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Pearson correlation, multiple regressions, and independent t test were used to analyze the collected data. This study was performed using SPSS software.
Results The results showed that balance confidence had a positive and significant relationship with all the dimensions of self-regulation in the elderly (P≤0.05). Other than the disclosure feelings component (P=0.250), other dimensions of self-regulation can effect balance confidence. It was also found that there is a significant difference between the active (balance confidence: 3.2446±0.63735; self-regulation: 3.8017±0.75943) and in-active (balance confidence: 2.3468±0.69454; self-regulation: 2.8208±0.79782) elderly (P≤0.05).
Conclusion This study confirms that lack of self-regulation in the elderly can lead to decreased physical activity and restrictions. It is suggested that self-regulation should be emphasized in the elderly so that they can overcome their environmental issues and enhance their balance confidence.
