    The advancement of the internet to the paradigm of the Internet
    of Things (IoT) has brought to society new ways of generating,
    sharing and using information. The evolution of computing capacity
    and energy savings in IoT equipament combined with better
    software can enabled several new applications, among which we
    can highlight the monitoring of people’s health through pervasive
    devices connected to the body. In view of this, this work proposes
    an algorithm to detect atypical situations such as falls in the elderly
    and other groups that need health care using accelerometers
    contained in wearable devices, particularly smartwatches. For the
    experimental evaluation of the proposed algorithm, a database that
    contains data from wearable sensors, environmental sensors, and
    visual devices was employed. The metrics used in the evaluation
    were accuracy, precision, recall and f1-score, with recall being the
    most relevant metric in the context. Results show that the best
    configuration of the algorithm is able to identify falls with 96%
    recall and F1-score of 90%.
