iStoppFalls - A Home-based Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Solution to Predict and Prevent Falls in Older People

Fall prediction and prevention is a research field where technology can be used to facilitate healthy ageing, well-being and independent living. The primary aim of the iStoppFalls project was to develop and evaluate innovative home-based technologies for continuous monitoring and prevention of falls risk in older people.  This series presents the main results of the iStoppFalls project, which was joint-funded by the European Union (grant agreement 287361) and the Australian Government (NHMRC number 1038210).
