Vital Responder Project: Wearable Sensors for Posture Monitoring and Fall Detection for Elderly People

Researchers from the Institute of Electronics and Telematics Engineering, from the Universidade de Aveiro (IEETA / UA), in the scope of the Vital Responder project are carrying out research on Wearable Sensors for Posture Monitoring and Fall Detection for Elderly People. The demo of this research work was recently distinguished with a best demo award for Applications of Smart Wearable Sensors at the 9th International Conference on Wearable Micro and Nano Technologies for Personalized Health, held in Porto, between June 26 and 28, 2012.
