[Purpose] The aim of this study was to investigate whether fall prevention training and sound feedback training affect motor function and physical ability cognition. [Methods] A multiple baseline study was performed with four elderly adults who participated in fall prevention training and sound feedback training over a periodof 8weeks. Motor function was measured with a Timed Up and Go (TUG) test and a Maximum Step Length (MLS) test, and physical ability cognition was measured using a Step Error (SE) test. [Results] There were no statistically significant differences between the TUG and MLS results before and after training. However, there was a statistically significant difference between the SE results before and after training. [Conclusions] The results of this study suggest that fall prevention training and sound feedback training improve physical ability cognition but do not influence motor function.
