Fall Database


The database consists of falls and activities of daily living performed by two persons (person1 and person2) – each person performed all activities twice. Hence, the database consists of 72 video sequences, containing 40 falls and 32 activities of daily living. The different scenarios are adopted from Noury et al. [1] and are described in [2].
