Development of a standard fall data format for signals from body-worn sensors: the FARSEEING consensus

Published in Z. Gerontolo. Geriatri. 2013, 46(8): 720-726 by Klenk, J. et al. Objective measurement of real-world fall events by using body-worn sensor devices can improve the understanding of falls in older people and enable new technology to prevent, predict, and automatically recognize falls. However, these events are rare and hence challenging to capture. […]
