A survey on vision-based fall detection
Falls are a major cause of fatal injury for the elderly population. To improve the quality of living for seniors, a wide range of monitoring systems with fall detection functionality have been proposed over recent years. This article is a survey of systems and algorithms which aim at automatically detecting cases where a human falls and may have been injured. Existing fall detection methods can be categorized as using sensors, or being exclusively vision-based. This literature review focuses on vision-based methods. Categories and Subject Descriptors J.3 [LIFE AND MEDICAL SCIENCES]: Health General Terms Survey Keywords Fall detection, Kinect, Survey
