Speakers: Dr. Steve Robinovitch, Professor, Simon Fraser University, Department of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology and School of Engineering Science
Falls are the largest cause of injuries in adults over age 65. Webinar participants will learn about new technologies being developed to predict, detect and prevent falls and fall-related injuries in long term care environments. Come and discover how real life data, acquired both through networks of video cameras and with wearable sensors is being used to predict falls and explore low cost solutions for fall prevention including flooring, fall mats, padded furniture and wearable protective gear.
