Senior’s airbag ‘prevents injury’

A Japanese company says it has made an airbag designed to stop elderly people injuring themselves by falling over.

The device is strapped around the body and inflates in 0.1 seconds if it detects it is accelerating towards the ground, the manufacturers say.

The airbag has been unveiled at the International Home Care and Rehabilitation Exhibition in Tokyo.

Could you use this critter for base-jumping? Without a parachute?
