A growing trend in society is the rapid ageing of its population, especially in the developed world. One of the major accessories of this trend is the reduction in mobility and ability to perform basic tasks of older adults, causing an increase in their dependency on others, but also increases the risk of them developing medical complications. The effects of sarcopenia and the strengthening of this due to the lack of physical activity of older adults add not only to the risk of falls resulting in fractures, but also to the risk of developing further medical complications. A lack of physical activity among older adults and the effects of sarcopenia can lead to a vicious cycle, with an increasing decline of health as a result.
