Standards in Prevention
Preventive, predictive, participative, personalized: these are the four magic dimensions of future medicine apart from advances in medical technologies and the use of big data.
Prevention became a major issue after 1986, when the WHO first publicized a definition of health – specifically, occupational health – for companies. Since then, as the pressure and burden of aging have increased in Western society, the focus has shifted and expanded to include preventive geriatrics.
Gerontology demands the preventive shaping of daily living conditions for the elderly both at elderly-care homes and in current living environments.
Many factors have been identified that can help the elderly stay healthy and live at home longer, delaying their transfer to elderly-care homes.
AIRS builds on forty years of experience with working-life prevention programs and helps shape the factors that promote appropriate standards. The use of advanced training technologies can help improve the preventive effects and influence the outcomes of general public-health initiatives.
