Objective: to know the benefits of brain gym to the stability of the ankle in young adult women.
Sample: consists of 15 people aged 19-29 years and were selected by purposive sampling
technique. Methods: A quasi-experimental to find out the benefits of gymnastics vitalization of
the brain to increase the stability of the ankle in young adult women. Data’s normality tested by
the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistical analysis. Results: Using the Wilcoxon test statistic P value
obtained was 0.12 while P 0.05, hal ini berarti Ho
diterima. Berdasarkan hasil pengujian tersebut dapat disimpulkan bahwa tidak terdapat
peningkatan nilai stabilitas pergelangan kaki yang signifikan dari pemberian senam
vitalisasi otak.


Dengan hasil data statistik yang telah dijelaskan sebelumnya, maka dapat
disimpulkan bahwa senam vitalisasi otak tidak memberi manfaat yang signifikan terhadap
stabilitas pergelangan kaki perempuan dewasa muda.
Insignifikansi nilai ini dapat disebabkan oleh tidak optimalnya pembelajaran
umpan maju yang terjadi selama senam atau kurang optimalnya pelaksanaan senam baik
dari segi jumlah kehadiran maupun pemilihan waktu pelaksanaan.
Penelitian berikutnya mungkin perlu dilakukan dengan mengoreksi sistem
pembelajaran dimaksud untuk mendapatkan hasil yang lebih optimal.
