A Miniaturized Fall Detection Device for the Elderly
Stand number: 3
FallWatch enables the miniaturization of a new fall detection device for the elderly. The project seeks to enhance reliability and security of alerts triggered in case of critical falls of elderly persons living alone or in institutions. The exhibition will show our research on the embedded sensor, which is directly set on the skin with a patch, and how the communication with a remote call center works. At our stand, an interactive prototype of a Vigi'Fall® device developed by the project will be shown. Visitors will be able to watch a demonstration of how FallWatch works during a typical fall situation.
