          Abstract

          Nowadays the average age of population is increasing. The society looks for bases which would allow the seniors to be independent within their limits as long as possible and to live dignified with the highest level of quality of their lives. Actually, there are not a lot of possibilities for movement activities under professional supervision for seniors in Slovakia. We observe their deficit in communities on the level of towns and villages and also in the organizations of social services or establishments for seniors. The aim of our work was to find out if we can achieve increments of quality of life among seniors by regular kinesiotherapy under observation of an expert. Stat ing the hypothesis, we assigned the zero and the alternative hypothesis on the base level of significance α=0.05. We divided the respondents into two groups. Both groups were comparable on the base of values of the test. In the group which completed the movement activities, more expressive improvement was achieved.
