CONCLUSIONS: A HBRT program using elastic resistance bands effectively increases dynamic muscle strength in elderly individuals with OH. Although no changes occurred in orthostatic blood pressures, which could be attributed to the limited length of the program, this therapy may be recognized as a safe method to improve strength, functional ability, and promote physical activity - variables that can reduce the incidence of falls and enhance the quality of life in this population.
