MetadataShow full item record
The traditional concept of Old Age Home is not very popular in Bangladesh due to the concern of proper health monitoring system. As days are passing by the demand of old age homes are increasing rapidly, therefore a proper health monitoring system in old age homes is now a necessity. Thus the purpose of our project is to analyze the basic health reading of aged people and make a serial record of the data, for providing urgent medication to the patient when needed and thus reducing the life risk. The paper gives an analysis of how to build up a system collaborating software and hardware to obtain basic health readings like body temperature, blood-pressure, and saturation of oxygen in blood and pulse rate. The project will also contain video footage using webcam by which the station nurse can monitor 24 hours and also can save video footage. We have used the software Graphical User Interface (GUI) which will contain all the patient’s details and an alarm system for medication reminder and doctor’s visit. The target of the project is to store and forward the data to the specialized ones through high speed internet in order to improve the monitoring system and to minimize the cost of the system. The project also promotes the mass number of people to get the advantages of such monitoring system.
