Frailty is a geriatric syndrome of increased vulnerability due to diminished physiologic reserves. It is associated with adverse outcomes of falls, hospitalization and mortality. Many scales have been validated for the diagnosis of frailty but they all require time and expertise to perform it accurately. There has not been any previous research on the use of innovative technology in the diagnosis of frailty but recent clinical studies have explored the use of such technologies in frailty treatment. The research project aims to develop and evaluate a novel virtual integrated therapy system named “Virtual Integrated Therapy for Active Living (Health Box” for both the assessment as well as treatment of frailty.
