FACET

Frailty Care and Well Function
Short Description: 

Development of a tool to integrate and query human phenotypic data in order to early detect frailty. The goal is to permit intervention on it and the associated diseases to prevent or delay the onset of disability.

Full Description: 

FACET focuses on the ‘quality’ of the years to be lived. The early detection of impeding
disease is complex, and a clear algorithm and clinical-friendly screening tools for detection
of frailty and/or disability are lacking. There exists a gap between living longer
and live healthy. Development of early detection tools will permit intervention to prevent
or delay the onset of frailty (and prevent further disability). FACET will impact on the quality of life of 13.05 million people
with potential for prevention in nearly half a million citizens annually.
