The relationship between the quality of movement, considering different global and universal basic patterns of movement and cognition domains in older adults remain unclear. The current study explored this association in physically inactive older women. In total, 187 participants, aged 60-70 years (mean = 64.9, SD = 6.9 years), were recruited from a physical education program in a public university. The older adults performed the following tests: Functional Movement Screen, Montreal Cognitive Assessment, and Modified Baecke Questionnaire for the Older Adults. The regression analysis showed an association between age (beta = -0.11, 95% confidence interval, CI, {[}-0.10, 0.30], p =.03); visuospatial abilities (beta = 0.36, 95% CI {[}0.24, 1.23], p <.001); language (beta = 0.23, 95% CI {[}0.20, 1.08], p <.001); and orientation domains (beta = 0.13, 95% CI {[}0.11, 1.22], p =.016) of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment and the Functional Movement Screen. The quality of movement was related to both age and cognitive performance, such as the visuospatial abilities, language, and orientation domains, in physically inactive older women. (AU)
