Fall Detection and Prevention for Memory Care Through Real-time Artificial Intelligence Applied to Video: A Randomized Control Trial


Brief Summary:

The purpose of the research is to study a new safety monitoring system developed by SafelyYou
to help care for a loved one with dementia. The goal is to provide better support for
unwitnessed falls.

The SafelyYou system is based on AI-enabled cameras which detect fall related events and
upload video only when these events are detected. The addition of a Human in the Loop (HIL)
will alert the facility staff when an event is detected by the system.


The study population includes residents of care facilities that are a high fall risk with a
particular focus on care facilities with high populations of individuals with Alzheimer’s
disease and related dementias. There are no gender, race, ethnicity, language or literacy
requirements for participation and all residents are eligible.
