Vitality is a physiological state resulting from the interaction between multiple physiological systems, reflected in energy and metabolism, neuromuscular function, and immune and stress response functions of the body (WHO). As a physiological determinant of physical and mental capacities an individual can draw on at any point in time, early detection of deterioration of vitality allow early interventions to delay the onset of frailty and extend the healthy lifespan of aging persons.Go to video
Muscle health is of upmost importance to maintain many organ systems, and therewith to our ageing process. The lecture will highlight the pathophysiology of muscle health decline and its consequences and gives advice on how to intervene to either maintain or increase muscle health. After the webinar, the participant can describe the relationship between sarcopenia, vulnerability and fall risk. The participant can apply the tools provided in daily practice.
