Abstract: Following a newly developed concept of health, this viewpoint suggests that the concept of frailty can usefully be defined as: the weakening of health, i.e. the resilience or capacity to cope, and to maintain and restore one's integrity, equilibrium, and sense of wellbeing in three domains: physical, mental, and social.
