 Purpose: To find out how the motor function and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in the elderly living in the community are influenced by a difference of health-locus of control (HLC) after exercise. Subjects: 44 elderly people participated in the exercise program for the prevention of long-term care or a specified supportive program. Method: Japanese version of the health locus of control was administered, and a change of HLC, motor function and HRQOL were compared in the pre and post exercise programs. We divided the subjects into three groups; internal HLC, external HLC and those influenced by both. Results: The motor function in all three groups significantly improved in the area of walking ability. Also, the HRQOL of those in the external HLC ultimately significantly improved, when compared to the onset. However, the change in the HRQOL of those in the internal HLC was not significant.
