What is your “Motion Age”?
Inside Healthcare, we all know that as we age our physical dexterity also diminishes. Understanding just how much we change as we age is unknown due to the amount of data needed to determine that change.
To help answer this, variables that DARI tracks regarding the ‘What’ and the ‘How’ of human movement have also been cataloged in a variety of ways for better analysis. One of which is based on a person’s chronological age.
Age Rating is when any metric is compared to a specific chronological age database or normative expectations. This categorization is often simple and linear in its definition, and easy to communicate. Thus “Motion Age” is translating the given metric to a corresponding age represented in population age expectations.
