Novel approaches to improve well being in the elderly
August 27, 2013

(Coordinator: Prof. Tomasz Kostka).

Both nutritional status and muscular fitness are predictors of functional capacity in advanced age. Functional status, and, more particularly, capacity to perform basic and instrumental activities of daily living are the most important determinants of quality of life and well-being in the elderly.

Comparison of different methods of estimating power of the most important muscle groups and its contribution to preserve function in the elderly would give novel important insights into more preventive and rehabilitative strategies in this population. Taking into account nutritional status and considering different subgroups of older population (e.g. patients with cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, dementia) would enable better treatment and rehabilitation planning. Therefore, the final goal of enhanced nutritional state and functional status is the improvement of life and well-being in the elderly population.

Four foreign institutions will be partnering within the Research Area I:

  1. Department of Gerontology and Geriatrics, University of Perugia (Italy) - Leader: Prof. Patricia Mecocci
  2. Geriatric Department of the Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud, France – Leader: Prof. Marc Bonnefoy
  3. IIIrd Dep Neurology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki - Leader: Prof. Magda Tsolaki
