Combining balance and cognitive training of different complexities through exergame balance training might train cognitive abilities in a better way in patients with mild cognitive impairment. The objective is to determine the effects of exergame balance training of different complexities on cognition in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The methodology was a double-blinded, four-armed parallel design, Randomized Clinical Trial. Ninety-seven participants with mild cognitive impairments MoCA (18-24), between the ages of 50 and 75 years, participated in the planned physical and computer-based cognitive training, and were randomly assigned to one of four exergame balance training groups (mild complexity, moderate complexity, high complexity, and control). Participants received three session per week for eight weeks. The assessment was conducted through sub-component of MoCA, Including visuospatial, naming, memory, attention, language, abstraction, orientation, Stroop A,B,C, Error at Stroop A, Stroop B and Stroop C at baseline, after the 4th and 8th week. The mixed model analysis of covariance while fixing the baseline values as a covariate was used to determine interaction effects between interventions and time. Post hoc analysis was performed to investigate between groups differences. A significant interaction effect of group and time was observed for visuospatial p<0.001, attention p=0.045, abstraction p=0.043 Stroop C p=0.032, Errors at Stroop B p=0.007 and C p=<0.001. A significant difference between moderate and high complexity groups with the control group were observed (p<0.05). The results indicate that exergame balance training of moderate and high complexity influence the cognition abilities to a greater extent.
