When AI meets aged care: using technology to keep the elderly safe
When an elderly relative falls over, help response time is critical. Left untreated, a fall can lead to injuries, health complications or fatalities.
In a world-first, a new Australian-made artificial intelligence-driven fall detection device is expected to be a game-changer. Called HomeGuardian.ai, it monitors the interaction of objects and people within its surroundings and alerts carers or family members if abnormal behaviour occurs.
