Abstract

Falling of the elderly becomes an important issue in the aging society. Falls could cause fractures which is significant cause of morbidity and mortality. As a result, active protecting devices are being developed to protect fallers’ body from severe injuries. In this study, as boundary condition and injury parameter are figured out by experiments and simulation of falls situation, the wearable airbag for protecting from falls is designed and make prototype of airbag. After that, compare contact force between fall simulation and experiments with prototype airbag. It will be possible to establish the reliability of the development of the fall prevention system for the elderly and to be the basis for the future development.
