Title
(EN) FALL PREDICTION SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USING SAME
(FR) SYSTÈME DE PRÉDICTION DE CHUTE ET SON PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
Various embodiments of a fall prediction system and method of using such system are disclosed. The system includes a hearing device for a wearer, a sensor operatively connected to the hearing device and adapted to detect a characteristic of the wearer and generate a sensor signal based on the characteristic, and a controller operatively connected to the hearing device. The controller is adapted to determine a fall risk value based on the sensor signal, compare the fall risk value to a fall risk threshold, and generate a fall prevention output if the fall risk value exceeds the fall risk threshold.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne, selon divers modes de réalisation, un système de prédiction de chute et un procédé d'utilisation de ce système. Le système comprend un dispositif auditif pour un utilisateur, un capteur connecté de manière fonctionnelle au dispositif auditif et conçu pour détecter une caractéristique de l'utilisateur et générer un signal de capteur sur la base de la caractéristique, et un dispositif de commande connecté de manière fonctionnelle au dispositif auditif. Le dispositif de commande est conçu pour déterminer une valeur de risque de chute sur la base du signal de capteur, comparer la valeur de risque de chute à un seuil de risque de chute, et générer une sortie de prévention de chute si la valeur de risque de chute dépasse le seuil de risque de chute.
