Hashirama's power has the ability to prolong life, but is limited... however, it is the juubi which is immortal so I assume that pure power of it is what is keeping madara alive which is why he is hooked up to the juub's body...
Do you realize that the panel you've shown is another plot hole based on your statement.
We know for a fact that the juubi's chakra was split amongst the 9 bijuu. If that is the case, then where in the hell is the chakra coming from that is Madara's life support?
Like I said, Hashi's boogers ooze of power/chakra.
