Gait monitoring wearable to prevent senior falls

Roozbeh Jafari and Texas A&M colleagues are developing a gait monitoring wearable to  prevent senior falls.  The system will analyze multiple sway and gait parameters while one walks or stands on one leg.   Users will receive auditory and vibration feedback to reduce an unsafe sway and prevent falls. The wearable will be worn on the ankle and chest, and can be used for home monitoring or clinical training/risk assessment.
