Feasibility study for the identification of pre-frailty and frailty conditions in elderly people. The Defrail project will allow designing a preventive intervention to delay or prevent their loss of functionality.
The analysis will serve as a basis to develop, in a second phase, a simple and intuitive mobile application for the supervision of the physical activity of the elderly by health, sports and social entities. The tele-monitoring app will allow the realization of an early intervention to prevent, reverse and decrease the progress of frailty in the elderly.
The objectives of the project are aligned with the strategy of Health Promotion and Prevention of the National Health System developed within the framework of the Chronicity Approach. The main purpose of this strategy is the development of interventions aimed at achieving a healthy ageing and stopping the process of frailty of the elderly and prevent diseases associated with old age, as well as injuries and disability.
The project, with the participation of Eurecat, is led by the Catalan Sports Industry Cluster (INDESCAT).
