The background of uric acid levels a disorder of purine metabolism in the presence of hyperbolic causes painful bones and joints, usually due to lack of exercise. This research was queasy experimental design with non-equivalent control group design. The aim of this research was to know the effect of ergonomic gymnastics on decreased uric acid levels in elderly. Sampling technique used non probability sampling with purposive sampling technique or judgment sampling. Samples collection used to choose samples that meet the criteria of research for 1 week, so that the number of samples was met as many as 20 people, with the division of 10 people the treatment group and 10 people control group. Wilcoxon signed ranks test at uric acid level of pretest and posttest in treatment group. The result of treatment group got the value 0,007 or p > 0,005, It meant that there was significant the effect of ergonomic gymnastics on decreased uric acid levels in elderly at RT 01 RW 07 Kel Bangkala, Manggala. Therefore, it is expected that the community, especially the people of uric acid levels should perform ergonomic gymnastics independently and regularly, but it is also necessary regulation of healthy lifestyle in order to prevent more severe complications.
