Description
Geriatric medicine has similar points of view to rehabilitation medicine. They have common concept for stages as disease (disorder), impairment, disability, and handicap. WHO has announced International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) has been evaluated rather high in geriatric syndrome, such as sarcopenia, frailty and cognitive impairment. Frailty seems to be found approximately 10-14% for more than 65 years. Sarcopenia implies a situation that physical function is reduced by muscle loss. These are evaluated by the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP2) and Asian Working Group for sarcopenia (AWGS) criteria.
