Abstract

The healthcare field can greatly benefit from the inclusion of innovative smart devices. Two common health concerns addressed in the industry are injuries due to falls and improper posture. This project aimed at designing a device to prevent the occurrence of these problems by monitoring a user’s walking and posture behaviors. The intent was to alert the user or a nearby caregiver if a fall or abnormal posture were detected. The device integrated sensors along with Bluetooth communication to successfully achieve this task.
