Wearable Wireless Fall Event Detector

Project Mission | Intellectual Property | Project Status

PROJECT MISSION

We are developing a body conformable, miniaturized instrumentation for (i) Measuring the ground reaction (input parameters) between the dominant foot and the floor that can be incorporated into a commercial insole with a wireless transmitter. (ii) Measuring the torso kinematics (output parameters) using a stamp-size inertial measurement cube (tri-axial angular rate sensors, accelerometers) that is chest mountable with a wireless transmitter. (iii) Waist-mounted central processor with a wireless receiver to monitor the signals and generate a CEA on detecting loss of balance.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Body conformable, miniaturized instrumentation for detecting loss of balance.

PROJECT STATUS

Completed for NIH - National Institute on Aging, further development active.
