Aging populations in developing countries have driven increased research interest in issues related to “eldercare,” with a particular focus on early fall detection. This article describes an approach to processing images captured using a depth camera to predict the probable inclination of an imminent fall by a pedestrian. First, the 3-D object reconstruction method is explained and realized. Then, the 3-D object inclination analysis is given. Experimental results show prediction rates achieved accuracy up to 98.11%, making this approach promising for use in applications in hospital and home environments in the near future.
