    Hola tengo duda con la palabra funcionalidad, el texto habla de que una persona debe seguir haciendo su vida normal, a pesar de las dificultades que tenga, como lentitud, sueño, etc.


    La oración es la siguiente.

    Pacientes que pierden funcionalidad.
    Patients who are losing their abilities.

    Me suena mucho más común, "ability to function." "Functional abilities" suena forzado...

    Patients who lose their ability to fucntion.

    "Functional abilities" es un término médico, según el Medical Dictionary:
    functional ability

    In physical therapy and in geriatrics in general, the term used is "a decline in function".
    I would therefore translate this as, "Patients who experience a decline in function".
