Author's abstract

20-30% of elderly over 65 suffer from chronic polymorbidity and disability. It represents not only medical but also medico-social and economical problem. Therefore, the main goal of geriatric medicine is to minimize the disability in old age. Though many instruments for functional assessment of geriatric patients have been introduced only few have been submitted to thorough complex validity-reliability studies. Verf.-Referat
