“Development of Fall Detector using ARDUINO through GSM for Health Care Use” is one of the detector system where new creation that can be used by all levels of society, particularly for disable people or elderly. Fall incidents can cause trauma, disability and death among older and disable people if unnoticed in time. Various fall detection solutions have been previously proposed in order to reduce the case. It is used to create a reliable surveillance system for elderly and disable people with high requirements on accuracy, specification and sensitivity. In this project, an enhanced fall detection system is proposed for elderly and disabled person monitoring that is based on accelerometer worn on wrist of the patient. The concept is to have a fall detection system which sends SMS as to notify and concerned people in charge or to the doctor at the time of eventuality. The message send using Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and accidental falls can be detected in home healthcare environment with the monitoring of accelerometer. The body posture is derived from the changes of accelerometer in three axes which is measured using 6 axis sensor (MPU6050). By utilizing information gathered from an accelerometer, the impacts of falls can be logged and differentiate from the normal daily activities. The accelerometer values in each axis are compared with threshold and also delay of 10 second to reduce the false alarms. Algorithm of this system is executed by Arduino Nano. Detection of fall is programmed to trace the body continously. During the detection of fall, the device sends a text message through GSM modem, and communicates it to the mobile phone.
