Porto4Ageing launches mobile app for self-assessment of frailty

Uploaded image: 

Porto4Ageing, a Reference Site and Partner Plus of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing, launched a mobile app which enables you to check how frail you are. The app, named FrailSurvey, is based on the Groningen Frailty Index and is developed to help senior citizens. It assesses diverse sides of their life, namely their mobility, physical shape, vision, hearing, nutrition, as well as cognitive and psychosocial aspects.

The results obtained in terms of frailty status are important for healthy ageing, as it can help lifestyle changes to prevent or revert a certain frailty status.ç
