The risk of falling is one of the most prevalent problems faced by elderly individuals. A study published by the World Health Organization  estimates that between 28% and 35% of people over 65 years old suffer at least one fall each year, and this figure increases to 42% for people over 70 years old. According to the World Health Organization, falls represent greater than 50% of elderly hospitalizations and approximately 40% of the non-natural mortalities for this segment of the population. Falls are a significant source of mortality for elderly individuals in developed countries.Block Diagram
