What is the ROLE OF PHYSIOTHERAPY in combating frailty? What are some of the programs available in Singapore that focuses on frailty prevention and management? Frailty is an emerging global public health priority that is projected to have a major impact on healthcare costs and the model of care delivery (Gustavson et al, 2017). Epidemiological studies in Singapore have identified about 6% and 40% of older adults being frail and pre-frail respectively (Ng et al, 2014; Vaingankar et al, 2016; Merchant et al, 2017), providing the impetus for strategies towards frailty prevention and management. Exercise is one of the key interventions to combat frailty. The recently released Asia-Pacific Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Frailty in 2017, strongly recommends that older adults with frailty should engage in a progressive, individualized physical activity program that contains a resistance training component.
