Improving fall risk estimation in the elderly using a wearable

Description

Many older adults fall due to an excessive blood pressure drop after standing up, but fall risk estimation for individual patients based on blood pressure drop is insufficient. Ambulatory measurement of brain oxygen levels and heart rate during standing up using a wearable is urgently needed to improve fall ris estimation and prevent falls.
