Abstract – Wearable sensor technology continues to advance and provide significant opportunities for improving personalized healthcare. In recent years, advances in flexible electronics, smart materials, and low-power computing and networking have reduced barriers to technology accessibility, integration, and cost, unleashing the potential for ubiquitous monitoring. Wearable sensors should be physically and technologically flexible to enable the monitoring of subjects in their natural environment. They have the potential to provide a rich stream of information that can transform the practice of medicine. This paper presents information on a  portable fall detection and alerting system mainly consisting of a custom vest and a mobile smart phone. A wearable device is integrated with pressure sensor and obstacle sensor. These devices are connected with GPS and GSM modem by using this health condition of the person monitor regularly .If there is any changes can be detect by the sensor and it immediately intimate to their respective people.   

Keywords— Alert; Detection; GPS; GSM
