For Submission - Failure and Repair in Fall Detection Systems for Older Adults: A Qualitative Review

Cardamone, E., Sheahan, J.

Engineering Studies
This qualitative review investigates failure and repair in fall detection systems through a qualitative analysis of 17 studies to engage a phenomenological approach to engineering studies. Walking away from quantitative assessments of failure through acceptance rates, ease of use, and false positives, we identify eight themes critical to reshaping the development and implementation of fall detection systems.


I acknowledge the peoples on whose lands I conduct my work, and respectfully acknowledge  Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
