The elderly all over Europe will spend the next three years testing smart technology for their everyday life. A movement sensor that is carried on the body will measure where they stand, walk, and fall.

The goal is to minimize the risk of falls and serious injuries by using smart alarms and tailored treatment and training programmes.

This EU project includes seven countries and eleven partners, including NTNU and SINTEF.
