My Active and Healthy Ageing: frailty study

The My Active and Healthy Ageing study is designed to develop and test a new computer-based platform to detect risk markers for frailty and to intervene to prevent the development of clinical frailty.

Suncare is participating in a groundbreaking study which aims to identify older adults at risk of developing frailty and assess the capacity of different interventions to reduce the risk of developing frailty. The multi-national study is being conducted by Associate Professor Mathew Summers at the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience - Thompson Institute.
Older adults with frailty are at increased risk of falls, which leads to a loss of independence and may contribute to increased need for residential care. The My Active and Healthy Ageing study is designed to develop and test a new computer-based platform to detect risk markers for frailty and to intervene to prevent the development of clinical frailty.
If you or anyone you know is interested in participating in the study, please contact Matthew McClymont (Ph: 0403 470 148 or matthew.m@suncare.org.au). There is much value for participants to be part of this trial and we encourage people to get involved.
