Andrés commented on Use of wearable sensors that detect falling potential

Hi Noble! I think your idea is really good.In Spain many old people have something similar to what you propose. It is a button attached by a rope that is used in a necklace or bracelet. When the person has a problem the button send a warning to his family. The problem is if the person faints. I think that a device like yours could detect these falls and would be a good differentiation than will make the product much more secure.
