Abstract: The motive of this application is to develop a system that detects risk of falling to give immediate assistance to elder people after the occurrence of a fall accident. Delay or lack of medical care after the occurrence of a fall often results in injuries, sometimes severe, and can also lead to death in some cases. The quality of life of older people can be improved by using automatic fall detection systems. An application prototype is implemented on Android operating system and is used to evaluate the proposed technique. The hardware part consists of the fall detection sensor that detects the body position of the user whether it is on a falling mode. In addition, our system has a panic button that can be used in order to alert the emergency contacts in the event that the user feels that a fall may happen.
