dc.description.abstract Worldwide improvements in the quality of life highlight immense need to have a remote health monitoring system that can provide critical biomedical data. This paper presents a low-cost health monitoring system, forming part of the Internet of Things (IoT), which aims at continuous, 24/7 monitoring of elderly people and disabled people. The system is implemented with a variety of sensors, for example, temperature, heart rate, and movement measurements, to observe a person’s status. Doctors may also prescribe this system with a specific number and type of sensor, depending on a patient’s condition. In a case study, three sensors measured the status of a person during the day. The measurements reflected the actions of the person as he/she relaxed or was active, in addition to monitoring his/her state of health. The observed data were recorded in a database that can be displayed by authorized caregivers. Results witnessed the efficacy of the proposed system. The proposed system finds enormous potential in giving remote healthcare facilities, especially to unaccompanied older adults. en_US
