Abstract:


This paper proposed a model to perform injury recognition to assist people with multiple disabilities using single infrared sensor with rotatable capability. Our model will be installed in a room to monitor the disabled for fall, inactivity and help request to recognize injury of people with multiple disabilities. This model alerts the caregiver with alarm, short message (SMS) and a scene screenshot (email), the screenshotassists in verifying false alerts. The designed model is sustainable as it is computationally inexpensive and efficient. Besides, the model is non-intrusiveas there is no wearable device required on the person under monitoring. The model is intuitive as the person under monitoring does not have to press any button for informing and verifying a possible injury.
