We describe a distributed falls management system capable of real-time falls detection in an unsupervised living context and remote longitudinal tracking of falls risk parameters using a waist-mounted triaxial accelerometer. A self-administrable falls risk assessment is used to facilitate falls prevention. A Web-interface allows clinicians to monitor the status of individuals and track their compliance with exercise interventions. Early identification of increased falls risk allows targeted… CONTINUE READING
