COLIN FORRESTER

ANDROID APPLICATION TO PROVIDE A TELECARE SUPPORT SYSTEM
This application utilizes the Android Framework in order to provide a telecare support system for anyone with access to a smart phone. The aim of this project is to give older people or those who have lost their confidence with movement a sense of safety.

The support that will be provided through this application will be a fall detection and alerting system. This is achieved by monitoring the accelerometer readings on the smart phone and when deemed as a fall the connected contacts will be alerted giving details on the fall such as the whereabouts and if there has been movement since the fall or if the user has said they are ok. Geofencing is also included where a safe zone can be set up using a map, and when the user transitions through these zones the contact can be notified.
