Dispositiu per detectar caigudes de persones grans

Investigadors de la UPC ha dissenyat un cinturó que incorpora un sensor de moviment altament sensible i que permet detectar les caigudes de qui el porta posat. Està pensat per augmentar la seguretat de les persones grans, perquè quan es detecta una caiguda localitza l’usuari, tant si es troba al domicili com al carrer, i emet un avís al telèfon mòbil perquè connecti amb una persona o centre de referència, que en aquest cas és la central de Coordinació del 061 CatSalut Respon.
