How serious is falling the elderly?
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four adults aged 65+ falls each year. And, one in five of these falls causes a serious injury. With the added risk of frailer bones, these falls can cause horrific injuries in the elderly. This is why it’s important to understand certain risk factors that make falling more likely. Once you know these risk factors, you can understand the safety tips to avoid any injury. In next posts we will talk about top causes of elderly falls & safety tips on preventing injuries.
Monitoring the Elderly
Alarm and Send Messages
The fall detection application informs the consequences of falling, but it would better if we can prevent people, especially the elderly, from the accident. We introduce a fall prediction system which allows us to analyze the walking pattern of the user with cutting-edge sensors and a camera to model a normal pattern of the activity. Therefore, if the walking happens to be out of the normal pattern, the device informs us about the risk of falling. This system utilizes real-time signal and image processing procedures using AI-assisted algorithms based on machine learning and sophisticated deep learning neural networks, making our system more accurate. The device will be mounted on a belt worn by the user. This application assists you to care for your loved ones, noticeably lowering down the risk of their falling

“Many older people (care recipients) experience long-term psychological distress due to the fear of falling again. Falls can affect carers due to concerns about their care recipients falling. Understanding carers’ fall concern is crucial to determine if carers are coping with the provision of care or have adequate knowledge and support in preventing their care recipients from falling at home.” You can find the full version of the paper on https://lnkd.in/ebhtjbcj, from which the aforementioned paragraph is obtained.

According to a news published on The New York Times “As the population ages, the number of older Americans who die following a fall is rising. A study published Tuesday in the medical journal JAMA found that for people over 75, the rate of mortality from falls more than doubled from 2000 to 2016. Researchers analyzed information obtained from death certificates maintained by the federal government’s National Center for Health Statistics. In 2016, the rate of death from falls for people 75 and older was 111 per 100,000 people, they found. In 2000, that rate was 52 per 100,000 people.” https://lnkd.in/dsUpEEe
