Elderly Fall Detection Alarm System



Keeping a close watchful eye on the elderly under our care when they are up and about is challenging enough, but how do we keep them safe when they are in their room or have gone to bed?

Elderly people falling is a leading cause of injury and death given the frailer state of their bodies. Falling could be due to issues keeping balance, failing eyesight or the sudden onset of illness – all risk factors for the elderly.

However, placing surveillance cameras in bedrooms is not an option due to privacy concerns. Instead, GF Technovation (Powered by Guardforce) has developed a non-visual fall detection alarm system.

The system alerts caregivers if the elderly person falls in their room, whether it is while moving around or exiting the bed unaccompanied, so they can respond without delay. Using this system, our elderly can enjoy peace of mind that someone will be there quickly should they need them, while also maintaining their privacy.

The system scans the motion of the human body in the area under surveillance using millimeter wave radar technology. 77GHz radar is chosen as it is subject to substantially less interference compared to infrared.

Though developed as a non-visual fall detection alarm and video images of bodies and faces are not shown, the system does graphically show the status of the person in the area being covered, as to whether they are lying down, sitting, or moving around, in the form of low resolution x-y-z points. This protects the subject’s privacy but ensures that any incident is captured effectively and can be dealt with.

As the person moves around, the system updates their motion status. If a fall is detected, caregivers receive an alert either via a PC or through a mobile device. This means that caregivers are free to carry out their other essential duties without worry.

The system is also suitable for any area where unobtrusive surveillance is needed and not only falling is detected, even fighting can trigger an alarm if necessary.
