Sarcopenia is defined as a combination of low muscle mass with low muscle function. The term originated to describe the loss of muscle mass and performance associated with aging. Nowadays, recognized causes of sarcopenia besides aging also include chronic diseases, a physically inactive lifestyle, loss of mobility, and malnutrition (Tournadre, Vial, Capel, Soubrier, & Boirie, 2019). The decline in muscle function is an integral component of frailty, which is defined by a decrease in function of several physiological and psychological systems increasing vulnerability to stressors. In addition to reducing quality of life, there is also an increased risk of morbidity, hospitalization and mortality (Tessier & Chevalier, 2018).
