The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of falls experiences on balance ability in people with stroke. The participant was 105 of community-residing stroke patients. Berg balance scale (BBS) and activities-specific balance confidence scale (ABC) were measured by trained physical therapists. There was a significant correlation of BBS and ABC (r=.58, p<.05). Fall experiences and numbers of onset were associated with BBS (p<.05) and fall experiences and numbers of living family were associated with ABC (p<.05). Fall experience gave more influence to the ABC than the BBS (p<.05). Preventing falls experiences during daily living will contribute to break the vicious circle ring between the balance ability and falls.
