Système de télé-alarme médical : application à la détection des chutes de la personne âgée

Abstract : In a context of a growing elderly population in industrialised countries, elderly-care is becoming a major problem. As traditional solutions (e.g. retirement homes) are no longer able to satisfy the increasing need, it would be desirable to give the healthiest part of this population a solution for their home care in a secure environment. Thus, the concept of smart-home for health, coming from home automation, has emerged in the last two decades. The general principle of this field is to propose a set of solutions for monitoring compliance, early detection of neurodegenerative diseases, social interation assistance or fall and emergency situations detection. Within this framework and to avoid the use of wearable sensors, we proposed a fall detection method based on optical correlation using video data. Our approach consists of two parts, one for identifying the person on the picture, the other for head tracking. The detection step is addressed by means of vertical and horizontal celerity
