In a nutshell: With falls being a common source of injury in elderly people and the ability to automatically detect falls allowing rapid responses to potential emergencies, techniques have been developed to reliably detect a fall as well as to automatically classify the type. This study demonstrated technology that enables machines to identify a fall and collect information to quickly classify the type to enable a more rapid response.
