The purpose of this paper is to designing a multi-purpose device to develop the performance of a kinematic chain on the balance beam device and knowing the effect of special exercises on the experimental research sample in developing the performance of a kinetic chain on the balance beam device for female students. The researcher used the experimental method to suit the nature of the research. The research community was determined by the intentional method, and they are the third-stage female students in the College of Alsalam, Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Divisions (C, D), and their number is (20). As for the research sample, it was chosen by the intentional method of female students practicing artistic gymnastic skills, whose number is (20) female students, where the percentage of the sample represents (100%) from the community. The researcher used the method of the control and experimental groups with two pre and post-tests. One of the most important results reached by the researcher is that: The effectiveness of special exercises associated with the multi-purpose designed device and its positive impact on the development of coordinating abilities of the experimental group, and the results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the pre and post-tests and in favor of the post-test in the harmonic abilities of the experimental group under study. One of the most important recommendations recommended by the researchers is that : Applying special exercises according to the device designed for students and for different stages, need for workers in the field of teaching rhythmic gymnastics to pay attention to the use of devices that help increase kinetic mastery of rhythmic gymnastics skills , need to use this multi-purpose device designed by the Iraqi Federation of Gymnastics, and using these exercises on other age groups and using them with the training samples of the Iraqi Central Gymnastics Federation and the national teams.
