Abstract: To be able to timely and effective judgment of the elderly fall, a fall monitoring device based on tri-axis accelerometer for elderly is designed. The device collects acceleration and the angle between elderly and horizontal plane of elderly people by MPU6050 tri-axial accelerometer, comparing the acceleration and angle that people and horizontal plane with threshold value to determine whether the old people fell. Delay for a period of time compared the angle and threshold again to judge the elderly in the fall still, finally send text messages to a mobile phone of guardian by GPRS module so that elderly can be helped.
