BACKGROUND: The use of technological innovations can play a significant role in healthy aging and social participation in old age; however, it is not well understood how social contexts can influence or support older adults' use of technology. This study explored the associations between technology use, perceived technology-related support and actual technology-related social support. It was expected that older adults who perceived having more supportive resources available would be more likely to receive actual support in technology-related issues, which, in turn would explain a greater use of technology in everyday life...

Matthias Bopp, Johan P Mackenbach
BACKGROUND: In 1989 the first international comparisons of mortality differences according to educational level and occupational status were published. A few years later systematic comparisons between European countries were initiated at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. This became a trigger for several European Union (EU)-funded collaboration programs scrutinizing social inequalities in health. The collaboration revealed substantial differences in mortality within and between European populations...

AIMS: It is known that blood pressure regulation differs seasonally. It is unknown, however, how the cardiovascular system in patients with a stroke reacts to postural changes in different seasons. The aim was therefore to investigate how different temperatures in cold and warm seasons influence the reactions of haemodynamic mechanisms as well as heart rate variability during a sit-to-stand test in patients with stroke and a control group. METHODS: Hemodynamic responses were assessed in both groups during a sit-to-stand test (5 min sitting followed by 5 min standing) beat to beat within two different seasons...

REVIEW
Johannes Klotz, Tobias Göllner, Nicole Gumprecht
BACKGROUND: Although socioeconomic differences in the mortality of middle-aged persons is well-researched, little is known about socioeconomic inequalities in mortality in the very old population. Surveys and population census follow-up studies in this age group are associated with reliability and validity problems. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate, by linking statistical information from register data, to what extent differences in mortality exist among very old Austrian men by socioeconomic variables (e...

All of the currently available guidelines specify a two-stage procedure. The first stage entails performing a comprehensive description, diagnosis and confirmation of the dementia syndrome. The second stage involves the precise etiological classification. Alzheimer's disease represents the most common cause followed by vascular dementia and Parkinson's disease dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal lobar degeneration and others. Dementia encompasses a variety of underlying conditions. This review gives an overview of the clinically oriented diagnosis according to the updated S3 guidelines in Germany...

REVIEW
Alina Schmitz
While it has been long known that health inequalities persist until higher ages, less is known about the underlying mechanisms and health trajectories over the life course. This article gives an overview on recent developments regarding theoretical concepts and methodological considerations in this field of research. It can be concluded that studies on the explanation of the social gradient in health are scarce and even less is known about societal contexts that enable healthy aging irrespective of the socioeconomic position...

Lisa Hahn, Josef Kessler
BACKGROUND: The mini mental state examination (MMSE) has been criticized for its lack of sensitivity, especially in mild cases of dementia. There have been several attempts to increase the sensitivity by adding or deleting items, which never became accepted in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: In the current study a new scoring system for improving the sensitivity of the MMSE is proposed, which preserves the original items and the total score of 30 points. Instead of changing the number of items or the total score of 30 points, the weighting of the different items in the total score of 30 points was changed...

REVIEW
Jacqueline Dreseler, Christiane Kugler
BACKGROUND: In the future an increasing number of patients in acute inpatient geriatric settings can be expected and their care needs new concepts. Animal-assisted interventions with dogs may represent a potential strategy to consider since animals can have a positive effect on patients' physical, psychological and social capabilities. OBJECTIVE: Identification of clinical and patient-specific outcome parameters by animal-assisted interventions for residents in long-term settings and discussion of the transferability of identified evidence to acute geriatric inpatient settings...

BACKGROUND: The balance of care approach is a strategic planning framework that can be used to research the adequacy of care arrangements and the cost implications. It seeks to identify people who are on the margins of care, i. e. whose care and nursing needs could be met in more than one setting, and explores the relative costs of the possible alternatives. This article describes a balance of care application for people with dementia in a transitional phase between home and institutional care in Germany...

REVIEW
Ulrich Lindemann
For older persons walking is a basic activity of daily life which characterizes the person's functional mobility. Therefore, the improvement of walking performance is a major clinical outcome during geriatric rehabilitation. Furthermore, walking performance is relevant for several geriatric research issues. Quantitative gait analysis can describe walking performance in detail. Besides gait speed, various qualitative parameters related to different aspects of walking performance, such as symmetry, regularity, coordination, dynamic balance and foot movement during the swing phase, can serve as outcome parameters in geriatric research and in clinical practice...

Dorothee Altmeier, Eleftheria Giannouli
BACKGROUND: Perceived self-efficacy to complete a task affects function and behavior. The modified Gait Efficacy Scale (mGES) is a 10-item self-report questionnaire to assess confidence in walking under various circumstances. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to adapt the mGES to a German version (mGES-D) and test its psychometric properties. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The final sample used for analysis consisted of 140 community-dwelling older adults with a mean age of 71 ± 6 years and 61% were female...

REVIEW
Jeannette Weber, Peter Angerer, Andreas Müller
BACKGROUND: The relevance of work participation of older persons is steadily increasing due to demographic changes; however, older workers are often confronted with negative age stereotypes such as being less flexible, adaptable and productive. OBJECTIVE: Against this background this systematic review summarizes research evidence on individual consequences of age stereotypes on older workers. It further discusses potential processes behind those relationships and gives suggestions for future research and practice...
