Farseeing are still publishing work, please see our latest paper about predicting falls and turning. Although turning has been reported as one of the leading activities performed during a fall, and falls during turning result in 8-times more hip fractures than falls during linear gait, the quantity and quality of turns resulting in falls remain […]

In this article, we present a pendant sensor based chair rise detection and analysis algorithm for fall risk assessment in older people.
Wearable sensor-based in-home assessment of gait, balance, and physical activity for discrimination of frailty status: baseline results of the Arizona Frailty Cohort Study
By Lis Boulton on January 1, 2015 in Farseeing Partners work, Functional Tests
OBJECTIVE: To examine the ability of wearable sensor-based in-home assessment of gait, balance, and physical activity (PA) to discriminate between frailty levels (nonfrail, prefrail, and frail).
Towards a social and context-aware multi-sensor fall detection and risk assessment platform
By Lis Boulton on January 1, 2015 in Falls and technology related publications, Falls Detection
In this paper, a social- and context-aware multi-sensor platform is presented, which integrates information gathered by a plethora of fall detection systems and sensors at the home of the elderly, by using a cloud-based solution, making use of an ontology.
