Abstract: The objective of this study was evaluate and characterize the behavior of center-of-pressure (CoP) during postural control between a group of healthy elderly adults with structure physical activity and a group of healthy elderly adults without structure physical activity.Population: 75 healthy elderly (mean age 686 years, range 61-83), 23 Male ,52 female; non fallers, 40 elements are regular practitioners of a structured physical activity program (45 min, 2x week, level moderate- IPAQ) and 35 elements are not engaged in structured physical activity.Instruments:Structured interview, Forceplate. After data analysis it is concluded that significant differences (p<.05) exist between Eyes open / Eyes closed, in measures of medio lateral oscillation between practice and non practice of Physical Exercise in total displacement of oscillation-TOTEX, the amplitude of the displacement ACP ml, in Area ml, the MV EC (Eyes Closed), TMV EC (Eyes Closed) at Mean Frequency EC and F50%,F80% spectral frequency EC. This last results are higher at the practitioners that evidence postural adjustments ability. The practice of Tai Chi, the practice of exercises on uneven surfaces and level of PA appear to influence the profile of postural control in the elderly, with significant results when compare the practitioners and non practitioners.
