1. A sensing device for sensing an emergence situation comprising:

  • acceleration sensing means worn on a body of a user, for sensing acceleration generated due to movement of the body;

    blood pressure/pulse sensing means for sensing a blood pressure and a pulse of a user;

    comparing means for comparing acceleration, a blood pressure, and a pulse inputted from the acceleration sensing means and the blood pressure/pulse sensing means with a reference acceleration, a reference blood pressure, and a reference pulse, generating an acceleration abnormal signal, a blood pressure abnormal signal, and a pulse abnormal signal if compared differences are greater than preset values, and outputting an emergency situation signal if both the acceleration abnormal signal and at least one of the blood pressure abnormal signal and the pulse abnormal signal exist;

    communication means for transmitting the emergency situation signal to an external apparatus through a communication network; and

    a controller for controlling the communication means to transmit the emergency situation signal to the external apparatus if the emergency situation signal is generated from the comparing means.
