Vigi’Fall for safer ageing at home

The FallWatch Consortium has developed a tiny triangular patch called Vigi’Fall that can be worn by the user in a non-intrusive, permanent manner. The patch interact with sensors placed throughout the living area and a central control box to detect any serious fall and timely inform emergency medical team.

The FallWatch/FallWatch DEMO projects have received combined funding of almost €2 million from the European Commission.
