Abstract: With increasing life expectancy and low fertility rates, Singapore is expected to have a larger proportion of seniors aged 65 years and above in years to come. As more spaces are made available for seniors to reside by themselves, there are growing concerns on the safety of these seniors as the human body naturally ages. It was reported that between 2013 and 2016, around 8000 seniors were admitted to the hospital each year owing to falls. Existing solutions such as wearables and surveillance cameras though proven to work, are met with low success either due to inconvenience or infringement of privacy. In this project, a Non-Intrusive Healthcare Monitoring System is introduced to be placed within the house of the senior without intruding their privacy or imposing on their lifestyle. The Sensors and Internet of Things system make use non-intrusive sensors and modern-day technology to remotely monitor an elderly’s health status via a mobile application.
