Downloads: I-Dont-Fall


Falls are the most prominent among external causes of unintentional injury: they account for approximately 40% of all injury deaths. Falls may be caused by several risks factors spanning from health to sociological conditions as well as to a constant increase of the ageing population. For this reason, fall management start to become a significant cost on the EU Governments overall budgets with relevant impact on the elderly care and assistance.
In recent years, ICT technologies have manifested their potential to enhance the autonomy and quality of life of elderly people, through boosting detection and/or prevention of elderly falls. Likewise, ICT solutions for fall detection and prevention could significantly reduce the cost associated with elderly care. In this respct, I-DONT-FALL (an EU initiative founded under CIP Work programme 2011), will deploy, pilot and evaluate a wide yet innovative range of highly personalized ICT-based solutions for fall detection and prevention management, which will be able to be flexibly configured to the needs of specific target groups and risk factors associated with fall incidents.
The presentation will provide an overall project presentation, clinical trial and technological solution that will be deployed in the 8 different pilot sites and used on more than 500 patients all over Europe.
