A smart floor from Denmark that promises to revolutionise staff management, falls response and behaviour analysis in aged care has been launched in Australia.

The Elsi Smart Floor, which has been released locally by HLS Healthcare, works in the same way as an iPad by tracking the motion and position of human bodies relative to their positions on the floor.
