Abstract

The world's elderly population is overgrowing. It is estimated that, by the year 2050, the number of older people in society has doubled. One of the biggest problems faced by the elderly population is falling. Therefore, this article proposed a smart wearable shoe to prevent falls in the elderly. Fuzzy logic has been integrated into algorithms to lead with uncertain situations. Thus, it is possible to infer the risks of falling in each case correctly. Black box tests and simulations reveal that wearable technologies can avoid falls.
