The ageing of the global population has an impact on the elderly quality of life, as the reduced mobility and balance contribute to the increasing of falls. Fall detection solutions can trigger emergency alerts and reduce the negative effect of falls. Fall risk assessment strategies can help to early identify fall risk factors and tailor strategies to revert those risk factors, by means of fall prevention exercises. However, most technological solutions do not simultaneously address these three aspects of the falls management cycle. FRADE platform will allow to pervasively detect falls using a wearable device, that can also be used to monitor fall risk assessment tests and recommended individual exercises, that can be performed at home with a tablet and two wearables.
