  • Welcome to the 1st issue of the FrailSafe biannual newsletter!

    Many health specialists often compare frailty to a popular game called Jenga. The aim is to pull out one block at a time from the tower until the structure is too fragile to remain standing. As we grow older, our body does not recover as quickly as before and each infection, fall or hospital admission can be represented by one missing block on the Jenga tower, weakening the whole structure until it eventually collapses. As each and every one of us age differently, with different genes and lifestyles, detecting the point of no return becomes extremely difficult.
