The Uses of Technology Trends in Smartphone-Based Detection System
Nowadays, the technology has been proven to be a valued asset to the department of health. From computer to smartphones, the technology helps the people in their activities, being these personally. The Smartphone carried by a person has the potential to a natural tool to provide this fall detection service. Today falls are the main cause of injuries among peoples. The process of caregiving and the quality of life of older adults can be improved by adopting systems for the detection of falls in automatic. A smartphone –based fall detection system which monitors the movement of patients, recognizes a fall, and automatically sends a request for help to the caregivers. To reducing the problem of false alarms, the fall detection system includes novel techniques for the recognition of those activities of daily living which could be erroneously mis-detected as falls. The fall detection systems have three different components such as data collection, fall detection, and location selection. These will utilize the smartphone’s built-in sensors to check the location of the smartphone in the user’s body. If the location can be identified the fall detection system of components take place. Nowadays, the fall detection system is provided including different types of sensors used.
Nowadays, smartphones have become a major part of the day to day life. A smartphone consists of an accelerometer, global positioning system, gyroscope and a camera. The falls that involve from the resting posture like slipping from the bed or fall from a sitting. The fall may also involve while walking or running, or fall supports ladders, tables etc. These various falls have different falls characteristics and various threshold parameters in order to detect the falling event. Most of the smartphone –based fall detection system suffers from the problem of false alarms, caused by some fall-like activities of daily living. The falls are risky, especially for the elderly people living independently. With the improvement of modern technology, the smartphone cost is decreased reasonably while their computational capabilities increased. With the prices, most of the people are currently using the smartphones. Most of the smartphones have integrated accelerometers which are used to mainly for the interaction of users and orientation detection. In many platforms, it is possible to access acceleration signal provided by the integrated accelerometer. The fast medical response is desired in fall situations, but the fall injuries may cause the people to be immobile to the extent that could not even be able to reach a smartphone to call for help.
Due to the modern technologies, a smart system aimed at detecting the fall injuries of a person have increased significantly and availability of modular electronics. The type of falls helps in optimizing the algorithm of the fall detection. Low power efficiency and high-efficiency approaches were emphasized with wireless capability that enhanced the smartphone –based fall detection system performance for a variety of application. It is emphasized that this application will be the best platform that can use to various test algorithms and multiple sensors at the time with easily.
