Fall Detection

Personal and unique device

Sense4Care develops and commercializes a fall detector device using part of the results of the CETpD research centre in the European project “FATE: Fall detector for elderly” based on a knowledge transfer agreement with the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).

FATE http://fate.upc.edu project represents a care model focused on strengthening public and private collaboration to reach a reliable service. It thus paves the way across Europe for opening new market opportunities and benefits for all stakeholders in the health and care sectors, as well as sustainable models for the future elder generations.

Fruit of these collaborations  a fall detector functional prototype was developed that was tested with 205 volunteers in three different European countries (Spain, Italy and Ireland).

Many falls are linked to a person’s physical condition or a medical problem, such as a chronic disease. Other causes could be safety hazards in the person’s home or community environment.

Falls are the sixth leading cause of death in older people. They affect 33% of people over 65 years and 50% of people over 80 years. Half of that number with multiple falls.

They are a common cause for entering a nursing home.

They decrease the quality of life because of:

  • Fear of falling
  • Less confidence
  • Sedentary live
