Wearable devices can predict frailty-related health risks
A study from Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that wearable devices can predict frailty-related health risks over six years in advance. The research, published in Nature Communications, analyzed data from 1,022 adults over 16 years. Participants with disrupted rest-activity patterns were more likely to develop frailty, independent of age and sex. The study suggests wearable devices could aid in early detection and intervention for healthy aging.
