Fall is one of the major causes of serious injury, which include fractures, traumatic brain injury, and death to the elders or people who live alone. A wearable fall detection system is becoming a potential solution thanks to its popular accelerometer sensor and easily implementation. In this study, we proposed a design and implementation of wireless fall warning system with real – time motion monitoring. The wearable motion sensor module received real-time human motion is used in combination with a smartphone through wireless Bluetooth connection. A Fall warning application on smartphone is responsible for wirelessly send fall warning message of subject through GSM service and Google map – based fall location. The implementation of our proposed system shows a great potential solution in supporting elders, decreasing deaths and improve their lives qualities
