Objective: The aim of this paper was to study static and dynamic balance in male athletes and non-athletes in 3 groups healthy, blind and deaf. Materials & Methods: In this analytical study, 86 male subjects with age between 18 to 36, purposefully were selected non-randomly. Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) & Y balance test were used to measure Static & dynamic balance. Statistical methods included One-Way ANOVA and paired T-test. Results: The results showed that there was not any

Moreover, there was not any significant difference in Y balance test in athletes group (F= 0.83, df = 42, p=0.44) whilst between non_ athletes group observed significant difference (F=10.15, df =38, p=0.001). There was significant difference between static balance of athlete group (F= 10.11, df =42, p=0.001) but this difference was not observed in non-athletic group (F=1.37, df =38, p=0.331). In general, athletes' performance were better than non-athletes' in both static and dynamic tests. Conclusion: Similarity between dominant and non-dominant limbs indicates that performance on this test using a non-injured lower extremity may serve as a reasonable measure for »normal « when testing an injured lower extremity. Seem sensory impairment people can their balance level to healthy people with exercise and so risk of injury decrease in daily performance and or exercise performance.
