This paper proposes Fall-MobileGuard, a novel real-time non-invasive fall detection and alarm notification system. [] Key Method The detection method consists of two main processing blocks; the first is threshold-based trigger and is executed on the wearable sensor while the second includes posture classification and operates on the mobile device. Conversely to previous literature, we introduced multiple severity levels of detected fall events.

An Analysis on Sensor Locations of the Human Body for Wearable Fall Detection Devices: Principles and Practice
