Medical and Home automation Sensor Networks for Senior Citizens Telehomecare

Abstract

This paper presents a home Tele-healthcare system for the senior citizens. The system uses home automation sensors to detect activity level of the persons. It is equipped also with other technologies to monitor them and detect any abnormal state in their health situation, like as bed and chair sensors, a mini PC connected to a TV, medical sensors, a wireless camera network. The system detects health abnormalities at an early stage through the frequent monitoring of physiological data. The system is designed for the elderly patients who wish to spend their old age in their own home, because of its potentials to increase independence and quality of life for seniors who prefer to live in their own homes and to realize cost savings for the health care system. By using this system MEDeTIC, a non-profit organization proposes a new concept of building smart homes named “Vill'Âge” at France.
