Abstract: Considering the day by day rapid increase in the population of the world, providing appropriate healthcare to elderly or unwell people becomes a crucial issue and needs high attention from mainly medical, also industrial and academic fields of the society. Nowadays on the Internet of Things (IoT), there is extensive research on finding the solution for improving the quality of life of the people. In this Project we are presenting a prototype of a health monitoring system which is based on IoT and makes use of wearable sensors, thereby providing remote and continuous monitoring of a patient’s health. The system continuously monitors the patient’s heartbeat, temperature and medicines consumed, by using a web application. Various sensors will be used such as heartbeat sensor and temperature sensor for patients as well as load sensor to get data about how many medicines patient have and when to refill the medicine box. Based on the values acquired from temperature and heartbeat sensor predictions are given about the patient’s condition. All sensors will be communicating with an application through a remote web server where all data will be hosted using IoT protocols.
Keywords: Internet of Things, Health monitoring system, IoT-MD, heart rate sensor, temperature sensor, MQTT, medicine box.
Scope of the Article: Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS
