Abstract: This paper presents a method of using smart sensors for continuous detection of vital physiological and physical gait signals that can be relayed to a fall prediction algorithm for predicting an imminent faint fall. A novel MEMS based BP sensor will be discussed briefly. Once an imminent faint fall is detected, fall prevention and injury minimization devices will be activated. A body area network consisting sensor circuits utilizing short range ISM communication will be used to enable signal transmission to a processor which acts as a communication gateway as well. This processor would then encode and send the signals via Bluetooth to designated devices to effect inform caregivers or family members. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
