BACKGROUND frailty is an important geriatric syndrome linked to increased mortality, morbidity and falls risk. METHODS a total of 399 community-dwelling older adults were assessed using Fried's frailty phenotype and the timed up and go (TUG) test. Tests were quantified using shank-mounted inertial sensors. We report a regression-based method for assessment of frailty using inertial sensor data obtained during TUG. For comparison, frailty was also assessed using the same method based on grip… CONTINUE READING
