||The existing fall detectors for elderly available in the market claim to be effective in detecting fall so as to reduce the risks of delay in assistance. But some of the devices in fact are costly, inaccurate and often cause false alarms. Suen Po Kwong successfully developed a reasonably accurate algorithm which can be implemented in low cost wrist-worn fall detectors. Suen is hoping to cooperate with a local healthcare device company to bring the new product to market.
