Title:
A New Method to Estimate the Real Upper Limit of the False Alarm Rate in a 3 Accelerometry-Based Fall Detector for the Elderly

Abstract:
Falls are a major concern for the elderly and their ability to remain healthy. Fall detection systems may notify emergency responders when no one apart from the injured is present. However, their real-world application is limited by a number of factors such as high false positive rates, low- compliance, poor-usability and short battery lifetime. In order to improve these aspects we have developed a miniaturized 3D accelerometer integrated in a belt buckle, the actibelt R , and a fall detection a...    »
