ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors discuss the concept of frailty syndrome which can be viewed as a combination of factors that affect the physiological state of a person. The authors say that the definition of frailty is not generally accepted, hence the models of L. P. Fried and K. Rockwood are often used in clinical trials. They also suggest that exercise is an effective method in the prevention of frailty, however individualized approaches are also necessary.
