Fall detection and prevention systems of homecare for the elderly: myth or reality?

Abstract : There is an exponential increase in the range of digital products and devices promoting aging in place in particular devices aiming at preventing or detecting falls. However, their deployment is still limited and few studies have been carried out in population-based settings. Such a matter of fact is due to the technological challenges that remain to overcome but also to the barriers that are specific to the users themselves such as the generational digital divide and acceptability factors specific to the elderly population. To date, scarce studies take into account these factors. In order to capitalize technological progress, the further step should be to better take into account these factors and to deploy, in a broader and more ecological way, these technologies designed for home care seniors, in order to assess their effectiveness in real life.
