A Reliable Remote Health Monitoring System For Elderly People

[Full Text]



P.Sritha, R.S.Valarmathi



Accelerometer, Fal1, Glucose Sensor, Heart beat Sensor



Most of people like living independently at home. We are prone to meet some accidents like falls in our day to day life. Falls can make people in fatal conditions, even death. A prototype of fall detection system using accelerometer, heartbeat and glucose is presented in this paper. Automatic SMS as an alert will be sent to family members if someone using this application in fatal condition and need some help. With the help of this project we can differentiate the normal and abnormal conditions of a person in accordance with daily activity. Several scenarios were used in these experiments. The result showed that the proposed system could successfully record better level of accuracy.
