About

Falls are a major health risk that diminishes the quality of life among elderly people. The estimated fall incidence for both institutionalized and independently living people over 75 is at least 30% every year. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year, 2.8 million older people are treated in emergency departments for falls. One out of five such falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or head injury.The consequences of a fall significantly depend on the time interval during which the person remains unaided after the fall. The conventional solution to the fall detection problem consists of providing people with a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS)—small, lightweight and battery powered device with a “help” button that can be carried by the elderly. However, the problem is it needs the user to press the “help” button, which may not be possible if the victim loses consciousness. Hence, it is necessary to build a system which can automatically detect falls and send request for help. To this end, an automatic fall detection system based on smartphones is proposed. The AI Foundation seeks to create an application that detects falls by using machine learning. This application will immediately let emergency services when a user falls. We have already finished the research of the system and received amazing results that gave us 99% accuracy. We plan on collecting more user data as we receive more funding. We have not yet designed the application, but have finished the machine learning process of the application. We require the funding in order to move the project to new heights as we try to improve human living.

Risks and challenges

The only challenge we are currently facing is finding more users to collect data from. This is still a work in progress, so we are still working on the GUI of the app to make it more user friendly.
