The aging of population is a worldwide social problem that all countries will face in the 21st century. The health and quality of life of the elderly will have a significant impact on the country and society. In fact, falls are the leading cause of accidental injury or death in the elderly. Fortunately, using inflatable airbags as a buffer to reduce the injuries caused by falls is currently the most effective means of fall protection. This paper designs an indoor protection device for elderly patients in the rehabilitation stage. It not only includes an accurate and effective fall detection system, but also can use airbags and mechanical exoskeleton to perform head, waist and hip joints on patients who are about to fall. Through experiments, the designed airbag can be ejected within a specified time, and the designed algorithm can accurately distinguish the fall of the human body from the daily behaviour of human body.
Key words: Detection of fall behaviour / Airbags to protect / Mechanical exoskeleton
