ABSTRACT

Biological aging translates into a trajectory of loss of physiological functions that transpose, among other consequences, to the progressive deterioration of cardiac function. These changes at the cardiac level have a potential impact on the daily life of the older adult and may contribute to a reduction in the ability to perform some activities, thus contributing to loss of autonomy. In this sense, the promotion of active and healthy aging should necessarily include the implementation of intervention strategies that promote cardiovascular health, contributing to the preservation of cardiac function in view of the biologically expected age and global clinical context. The [email protected] project, as a multidisciplinary, integrated, and personalized intervention model aimed at evaluating and modifying habits and improving the quality of life in the older adult, has previously shown promising results regarding cardiac structure and function, with significant benefits in terms of the overall health and functionality of the older person.
