Methods: The aerobic capacity of the volunteers was assessed using a six minutes walk test (6MWT), the postural balance was assessed using the Berg Balance Scale (BBS), the number of falls was self-reported and physical activity level was assessed using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ - long version).
Evaluations undertaken in 2008 were compared to those performed in 2005.
Results: There were no differences in balance and number of falls between 2008 and 2005 (p 0.05).
There was a decrease in aerobic capacity over time of 52.46±8.4 meters walked.
