what is Geriatric Medicine?

Geriatrics as a medical field pertains to the care and rehabilitation of elderly patients, particularly when dealing with the physiological and psychological changes that impact senior patients. Geriatricians aim to aid their patients in functioning independently and help treat diseases that advance with age, such as osteoporosis, cataracts, and Alzheimer’s disease. Medical devices created to help these patients are tailored to gain back as much of their functional ability as possible.
