Fall Management and Care Assistance | Use of Sensor Floors in Practice

When older people fall, this usually leads to hospitalisation and a deterioration of their health. For the care sector, a fall always entails additional costs. For this reason, falls must not only be recognised promptly, but also avoided. With latest sensor technology, this is already possible today. The lecture will deal with the installation, the functions and the benefits/measurable success of sensor flooring in practical use.
