011A company in China has designed an inflatable belt to protect the elderly if they fall. The belt works like an airbag in a car, which the company used to make, before realising the potential of catering to consumer demands from China's ageing population.

010A micro gyroscope is used to detect the speed of the fall and angle of the wearer and a microprocessor is used to trigger the airbag. China's population growth rate continued to slow in 2018, spelling possible trouble ahead as a swelling number of retirees pushes up against a shrinking labour pool. Figures released in January by the National Bureau of Statistics put the population at 1.395 billion in 2018. Care for the elderly is a rising government concern as the working-age population continues to fall as a percentage of the total.012
