Short summary
This paper presents results of an experimental investigation on the falling down of human body in order to identify significant characteristics and parameters. Vision tracking system and suitable sensors to monitor the falling motion. Tests are discussed with results from lab tests that give both behavior and values of the biomechanics of falling down of human body.
