Objective: To investigating the correlation among the functional capacity using 2-minute step test (2MST), the functional mobility using the time up and go (TUG) test, and the sit to stand test (STS) in hypertensive elderly people.

Material and Methods: The correlational research design was used to evaluate the correlation among 2MST, TUG test, and STS test in 60 hypertensive elderly people. Each subject performed one trial in 2MST, and then performed three trials in TUG test, STS10 test, and STS60 test. A 5-minute rest period was given between each test.

Results: Functional capacity was correlated with functional mobility in hypertensive elderly people. The results revealed that 2MST was negatively correlated with TUG test and STS10 test (r=–0.635 and –0.266, respectively). Whereas, the 2MST was positively correlated with STS60 test (r=0.521).

Conclusion: The functional capacity was correlated with functional mobility in hypertensive elder subjects.
