- Approximately 15% of world population faces some sort of disability which effects their social life and make them overly dependent on the others. Similarly old aged peoples’ cognitive, physical and psychological health is negatively affected due to aging. To increase the disabled and old aged peoples’ functional capabilities, several IT-enabled devices have been designed. Internet of Things (IoT) is a new paradigm in which “things” are connected to Internet for control applications. In this paper an IoT based health care system has been developed to help disabled or old aged people. In this system elderly or disabled people can communicate their urgent needs to the health care staff in the form of specific important prerecorded audio messages. These messages can be played by touching their smart phone scree on IoT interface. Also, with the suggested design, the elderly people can control the home appliances from one location using their smart phones.
