Abstract:

Real-time monitoring of the physical condition of the elderly people has become mandatory nowadays. The reason for rise in demand of aging services is due to the rise of the elderly population. We need precise, fast and effective transmission of information about their health condition to the concerned. Also there lies a need to transmit more parameters and more data for the convenience and effective response by the concerned people. Since we need an effective response we make use of the voice-call facility apart from the SMS mechanism also. The system proposed here called Noninvasive Elder Monitoring System (NEMS) monitors blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and ECG of the elders. Any critical condition is reported to the medical service center and relatives via an SMS and voice call, to arrange for proper services to the elder at right time. We make use of the GSM modem for the SMS and voice call facility. © 2011 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.
