Fall detection system is an assistive device that can send an alert signal when it detects a fall. The accuracy of the fall detection system can be determined by its specificity and sensitivity. Specificity indicates the accuracy of not detecting a fall in the activities of daily living, while sensitivity indicates the accuracy of detecting a fall when it actually occurs. The primary objective for the use of a fall detector is to reduce the amount of time in which the victim of the fall lies on the floor as the time spent on the floor is considered to be directly proportional to the severity of the fall. Fall detection systems help differentiate a fall from activities of daily living, and prevent depression and improve the quality of life of elder people, who are most prone to fall-related injuries. The fall detection system is primarily used in home care settings and senior assisted living facilities. "
