Frailty is no longer just an adjective for old age

Aug 05, 2019 15:50 IST

Frailty, the term often associated with turning old, is no longer just an adjective. It is a medical condition with social and economic consequences, suggests a new study by Monash University in Australia. The study looked at frailty in 120,000 people over the age of 60 in 28 countries and found that over 4 percent of the people develop the condition every year. The study also found that women were at a greater risk of frailty than men. Though there is no standard definition of frailty yet, the study suggests that regular screening and muscle strength training may help combat the problem.
