Falls become more frequent during the period of aging because of divers diseases, and inattention of the elderly. Moreover, they are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for elderly people.
Thinking about this, D’Impact has been designed. D’Impact is a new service of drones that has the purpose of helping elderly people, who are living alone, and often fall inside their houses. The wireless system can call to families of the elderly during the falls and live transmit what is happening in the moment. This way, the family can help the elderly and trigger ambulances or police more quickly and easily, thus avoiding fatal injuries.
