Wirelessly detecting a fall in real-time from a standing p​osition by a long-term care resident with dementia​

Team: Mackenzie Christensen​ (Bioengineering Master's student), Dr. Cathy Bodine, Dr. Levin Sliker, Anthem Memory Care | Chelsea Place

In 2010, there were 35.6 million people worldwide living with some form of dementia. This number is expected to increase to 65.7 million worldwide by 2030 and 115.4 million by 2050. One in 3 seniors will die with dementia. A common challenge in memory care facilities is preventing falls, and alerting staff if a fall occurs.

This project, in partnership with Anthem Memory Care, is focused on developing a wireless fall detection device for long-term care residents with dementia.
