Eight tests and an evaluation on a force platform were used. The subjects were divided into 2 groups; one was subjected to an intervention proposal with double tasks and the other with simple tasks. After the intervention, the double-task group maintained its performance in the tests and showed improvement in the cognitive performance of some activities during posturography. The simple-task group required more time for simple and motor Timed Up and Go tests, and there was no increase in cognitive performance or postural control. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
