Falls are a serious health concern among older populations. Similarly, Type 2 diabetes, a chronic disabling disease is highly prevalent among older individuals.Objective: To analyse whether Resistance training given with Therabands are effective to prevent falls . DESIGN: The study design was pre - test, post – test experimental study design. METHOD:  Purposive sampling was used.  80 subjected were selected & treated with Resistance Exercises with Theraband. TOOLS USED:  Timed up & go Test to assess Fall Risk RESULTS: Statistical analysis done by using paired t- test showed there is significant reduction in Fall risk. CONCLUSION: Results from this study shows that Resistance training given with Therabands are effective to prevent falls in Type 2 diabetic patients
