Summary

The objective of the project is to reduce the number of falls on geriatric wards. To archive this goal a sensor system based is developed and evaluated. The system is able to detect attempts to get up and informs nurses that can offer assistance. A prototype has been successfully evaluated in a pilot clinical trial over one year with 98 patients. The next steps are the development of a custom tailored sensor-node and a multi-center trial to fortify the first results.
