User-Based Motion Sensing and Fuzzy Logic for Automated Fall Detection in Older Adults

Boissy, Patrick et al, Telemedicine and e-Health. December 2007, 13(6)

Fall detection and early medical response are challenging and promising aspects of home healthcare for older adults. A two-step algorithm for falls analyzed accelerometer data for 750 test events and found significance limits for body trunk angle change as well as falls. Automated detection of falls based upon motion sensing and fuzzy logic can be based upon evidence-derived rules.
