Quantitative measures of healthy aging and biological age

2015 Healthy Aging Research  
Although based on different numbers and types of health variables, frailty indices possess several common properties that make them useful across different studies.  ...  To facilitate the study of these factors, various descriptors of biological aging, including 'successful aging' and 'frailty', have been put forth as integrative functional measures of aging.  ...  Thus, it is considered to be more informative and productive to use the FI for an integrative genetic analysis than to use single or a small number of health variables.  ...
