How to develop a wearable fall detector

How to develop a wearable fall detector

Across Europe there is a massive demographic shift leading to an increase in the number of elderly people in the population. As a consequence of this shift, the proportion of elderly people wanting to live at home at an advanced age is continuously increasing.
 

As older people are at a greater risk of falls, there is an increase in the number of falls that medics are called to attend, as well as an increase in the need for suitable monitoring systems that can ensure help is despatched as quickly as possible.
 

In order to overcome the limitations of currently available fall detectors, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Daniel Goldbach and J. Veit of the FH Aachen, University of Applied Sciences have developed a fall detector to provide elderly people greater security in everyday life.
