Device to protect elderly from falls
A fall can have serious health consequences, especially for the elderly. A Bengaluru-based doctor-engineer BG Sudarshan has developed a device that could help.
The wearable device detects a fall and calls out for help. The device is wrapped in silicone and can be worn around the waist.
He has developed another wearable device that monitors vital signs and can be clipped onto the fingertip. The device detects abnormalities in vital signs and the readings are sent to a doctor.
