Abstract

The accelerated aging population around the world will be more obvious. In the USA, there will be about 72 million people aged 65 by 2030; There will have nearly 36.98% of the elderly population in Taiwan until 2050. Those people will need health care too. Nowadays, the current health care focus on the passive home care in Taiwan; however, the devices which can provide elder to carrying in outdoor will be huge and heavy, and also the devices will hard to actively send the alert message for the medical units when the patient have problem in their health. Therefore, the proposed of this study is to miniaturized vital sign detection and active alert system. The system will give elder the privacy, convenience, and security as well. Hoping this study can not only reduce the medical unit's work but lower the medical resources cost; moreover, it will also enhance the quality of life for the patients.
