Aims: This study aims to determine the available evidence for the predictive power of frailty status (pre-frail and frail) in community-dwelling older adults for the incidence of disability in Basic Activities of Daily Living (BADL) and institutionalisation.
Methods: Web of Science, PubMed and PsycInfo were systematically screened for prospective studies regarding the relation between frailty and BADL-disability/institutionalisation. Odds Rations (OR) and Risk Rations (RR) were extracted and/or calculated and meta-analyses were conducted in Open MetaAnalyst to assess the association between frailty status and the likelihood of developing BADL-disability or being institutionalised.
