The paper deals with the detection of the fall of the elderly. The ultimate goal is to reach a good compromise between real time detection, sensibility, specificity and intrusivity. Different technical approaches are presented. A more precise description of our smart fall sensor principle is presented, with results, and the proposition of the new flexible version which was realised and is being currently integrated in a garment
