The Project Choice- Personal Anti Fracture Air Bag
So after some discussion and research on what things have and have not been done before. We decided to go with the Personal Anti Fracture Air Bag. The idea as shown in the sketch from our brainstorming session was to create an air bag belt that would deploy if a senior citizen suffered a fall. The belt would have gyro sensors that the detect angle of motion and speed and would only deploy if it decided the wearer was falling. Similar technology exists in cars and other applications but not for this type of protection for a person. We decided to move forward with this idea.
