Remote health monitoring system has been an interesting topic recently among medical practitioners, engineers as well as IT professionals. However, the application of remote health monitoring system where doctor's can monitor patients' vital signs via web is practically new in Malaysia and other countries. Remote health monitoring system is beneficial to the patients and society where the implementation of such system will save hospital bill, waiting time and reduce traffics in the hospital. The objective of this project is to design and develop body temperature measurement device that can be observe by the doctor in real time as well as history data via internet with an alarm/indication in case of abnormalities. In the proposed health monitoring system, heart rate and body temperature wireless sensors were developed, however this paper only focus on body temperature wireless monitoring system. The temperature sensors will send the readings to a microcontroller using Xbee wireless communication. To send the real-time data to health monitoring database, wireless local area network (WLAN) has been used. Arduino with Ethernet shield based on IEEE 802.11 standard has been used for this purpose. Test results from a group of voluntary shows the real-time temperature reading successfully monitored locally (at home) and remotely (at doctor's computer) and the readings are comparable to commercial thermometer.

The paper presents a platform, which enables the remote connection, via Internet, to assisted persons and their environment. The platform is integrated in a homecare monitoring system able to monitor and diagnose patients outside hospital and also to control the home ambiance. The hardware architecture of the homecare monitoring system, which is based on a wireless network, contains three levels: basic level (persons/WSN-based platforms and home ambiance/smart house), intermediate level (primary...

Temperature and Blood oxygen level is one of the most important parameters of the human body. A lot of health issues are depending upon Body temperature and blood oxygen level. There are various types of devices are available to measure those parameters. But still, it leads to a lot of problems like high cost, size, accuracy, and more. To made a solution for this problem, a plan to develop a project as low cost, compact size, and high accuracy. In this project was using MAX30100, MPU6050, Arduin...
Aimed at preventing heat strain, health problems, and absenteeism among workers with physically demanding occupations, a continuous, accurate, non-invasive measuring system may help such workers monitor their body (core) temperature. The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy and explore the usability of the wearable non-invasive Cosinuss° °Temp thermometer. Ear canal temperature was monitored in 49 workers in real-life working conditions. After individual correction, the results of the l...

CoVID-19 pandemic signified the importance of social distancing and non-contact routines. Even after the pandemic, everyone should abide by the same protocols for a hygienic life. Institutions must put in place pre-emptive measures before people return. These include marking the presence of employees and monitoring their health status. This paper focuses on developing a contactless employee management system with sensor fusion and facial recognition technology. Image processing capability in the...

One important health problem that could affect diabetics is diabetic foot syndrome, as risk of ulceration, neuropathy, ischemia and infection. Unnoticed minor injuries, subsequent infection and ulceration may end in a foot amputation. Preliminary studies have shown a relationship between increased skin temperature and asymmetries between the same regions of both feet. In the preulceration phase, to develop a smart device able to control the temperature of these types of patients to avoid this ri...

An effective continuous monitoring system on human activities and vital signs provides a rapid detection and assistance in times of critical events. Most of today’s existing systems concentrate only on providing indoor monitoring solutions, not taking into consideration that danger is more prominent outdoors. This work proposes a multimodal system solution to monitor elderly people outdoor. The proposed solution simultaneously monitors different modalities, and detect if any problem occurs. Usin...

Abstract Health is a major concern for everyone in today’s world. The number of health problems faced by people today is increasing, and largely regardless of their age. Identification of health-related issues can assist in finding a cure as early as possible and can also lead to a better quality of life. The traditional healthcare system is comparatively more time-consuming. Hence, an Internet of Things (IoT)-based healthcare system is a possible solution, because it provides more flexibility a...
