These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • Systematic review of indoor fall detection systems for the elderly using Kinect   Order a copy of this article
    by Amina BEN HAJ KHALED, A.L.I. KHALFALLAH, Mohamed Salim BOUHLEL 
    Abstract: The fall of the elderly presents a major health problem as it may cause fatal injuries. To improve the life quality of the elderly, researchers have developed several fall detection systems. Several sensors have been used to overcome this problem. So far, Microsoft Kinect has been the most used camerabased sensor for fall detection. This motion detector can interact with computers through gestures and voice commands. In this article, we presented a comprehensive survey of the latest fall detection research using the Kinect sensor. We provide an overview of the main features of the two Kinect versions V1 and V2 and compare their performances. Then we detailed the method used for the articles selection. We provided a classification of the fall detection techniques to highlight the main differences between them. Finally, we concluded that it is not enough to evaluate a system performance under simulated conditions. It is important to test these approaches on old people who are likely to fall.
