Background and Objective: Age is related to motion coordination. It is necessary to distinguish age variations to recognize functional changes in human. The correlation between these indices has not been studied in structural equations model however, in much performed studies about performing clinical motion function standards, the effects of these variations have been studied to perform functional exams and also the correlation between age and anthropometric indices. Hence the correlation between motional function standard and anthropometric indices and age were investigated in this study.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed by multiple measurements on 133 participants aged 18- 59 years old and by available sampling method. The data were collected using anthropometric factors measuring and recording the duration of clinical balance tests performance. Three models were evaluated separately. The method of the structure equations modeling was used to analyze data.

Results: The third model indicated suitable fitting of data better than the other models (RMSEA = 0.038, CFI = 0.992), X2 was not significant (p= 0.260). Also in the three models, standard coefficient were significant between the path way of functional tests performance and age (0.540), and between the path way of age and anthropometric indices (0.340).

Conclusion: The age affects clinical balance test and anthropometric indices. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the index of age as a standard which influences tests performance to study clinical diagnosis in order to evaluate sport damages such as head damage.

Key words: Age, measures of motor function, Anthropometric index, Structural model
