Abstract

Today, due to the development of medical technology and the efforts of medical staff, safety at hospital is increasing. On the other hand, Japan’s declining birthrate and an aging population will impede the improvement of the quality of medical services in the future. Therefore, it is desirable to introduce technology to replace people. In this research, we focus on patient falling and improve ways to assess risk of patients as a first step.
