A novel wireless circuit module is designed in this study to perform ubiquitous fall detections and then real-time fall detections of help messages. It is a common trend that as the demand for living quality increases tremendously while the technologies of electronics and medicine advances greatly, personal cares are elevated to the next level. As for the aging society, the issue of injuries due to falls among senior population arises rapidly [1,2]. Costly prices are often paid as the elderly falls without notice from companions at the site. Therefore, various modules and/or systems of automatic and wireless fall detection are developed into a past pace. Such fall-detection modules are demanded to be able to automatically detect falls of subjects and then send the help message to a remote hospital for an immediate help.
