Falls are the largest cause of injury among elderly in the western world. More than half of seniors above 80 years old fall at least once every year. In Norway alone there are more than 9 000 incidents of hip fracture every year. This means one hip fracture every hour. Mental, social and economic costs of falls are enormous. In ADAPT we ask ourselves: Can ICT help find those who are in the danger of falling? What are the best technologies, and what is the effect of these technologies?
