Falling is a major health worry for the elderly because it is so common and may be so dangerous. The number of fall-detection devices has increased dramatically. Using a body area sensor network in the abdominal position, this article proposes to assess falls in the elderly. Real-time data and analysis for identifying certain everyday activities and specific situations of accidents and accidents in the home. A battery powers a wearable light gadget, which uses less electricity. Our proposed gadget includes a 3-dimensional accelerometer sensor, a microcontroller, and a communication device. Using the Sensor, you may speed up the actions of an aging body. The microcontroller then identifies the body’s position and the fall from three-axis accelerations, which it subsequently processes. Vital signs monitoring system (VSMS), Global positioning system (GPS) for a place, Global system for mobile communications (GSM) for data transfer, and microcontroller for processing were also utilized to measure temperature (TEMP), Oximeter saturation (SPO2), Electrocardiogram (ECG), and sensors. In two different trials including ten participants aged 35 to 55, Accelerometer (ACC) prevalence was determined. A total of 200 samples were obtained for all tests, each position and activity has its own (normal activities and falls). The fall detection system obtained 98.5 % accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity in detecting the patient’s fall in the experiments. In addition, fall alerts were delivered, and the patient’s position was accurately detected in all situations. The project’s vital signs values were in line with or slightly better than the target. SPO2, TEMP, and ECG are essential terms associated with 3-dimensional accelerometers.
