Title: DEVICES, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR DETECTING FALLS
Abstract:
Devices, systems, and methods are disclosed for detecting falls and transmitting notifications. One embodiment includes a wearable device. The wearable device may include a first sensor configured to collect acceleration data, and at least one of a second sensor configured to collect pressure data or a third sensor configured to collect temperature data. The wearable device may also include an antenna and a processor. The wearable device may also include a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium storing instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to receive the acceleration data and at least one of the pressure data or the temperature data, process the acceleration data and at least one of the pressure data or the temperature data, and control, when the processor determines that a person falls, the antenna to transmit a signal.
