Falls are identified as a major health risk not only for the elderly but also for people with neurodegenerative diseases, such as epilepsy, and are considered as a major obstacle to independent living. Fast detection of falls would not only decrease the health risks by enabling quick medical response; but also make independent living a safe option for the elderly.

Besides automatic fall detection, our application

provides location information of the subject using the integrated GPS module and also sends a warning about the fall and the location information to interested users, such as the caregivers, the doctor or ambulance service providers, via SMS, email and Twitter messages.
