The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the acceleration of the center of gravity of body during sit-to-walk motion have a relationship with falling or not. In this study, we measured sit-to-walk motion of fall experienced and inexperienced subjects by using a portable acceleration monitor device that we have developed. The result of discriminant analysis by using indexes with a significant difference revealed a 90.3% correct prediction rate for falling. The results indicated possibility of fall prevention by this method.
