Nicolas Zurbuchen and Pascal Bruegger presented their work on “Comparison of Machine Learning Algorithms for Fall Detection using Wearable Sensors” at the ICAIIC2020 in Japan.
The proportion of people 60 years old and above is rapidly increasing. A leading cause of death among elderly are falls. This paper presents the development of a Fall Detection System using an inertial measurement unit worn at the waist. We compared the effectiveness of five Machine Learning algorithms. Ensemble learning algorithms have the best performance with a Sensitivity and Specificity close to 99%.
