Data analyses used the paired and two sample t test with α = 0,05. The result of the study showed there was significant differences in the BADL values of respondents in treatment group before and after doing rheumatic callisthenic (t(40)=6,904, P=0,001) and in the IADL values as well (t(40)=4,281, P=0,001). At analysis showed there was differences in the BADL (F=76,583, P=0.001) and IADL values(F=19,004, P=0,001) between treatment group and control group.
