Abstract: This is an innovative application that can help the disabled or paralytic patients to convey messages or call helper or the nurse just by using simple gesture movements since paralytic or disabled people cannot press a button or ring to call a nurse or helper when they need. Even if they can move a particular limb like moving their hand up to a limit or moving their legs up to a limit, this system can be mounted on those limbs and just by a simple movement or a gesture, and they can pass on various messages and call the attendant. The reason why this prototype is needed is described by the following objective. The primary objective of this project is implementing a relatively less expensive reliable framework that helps in assisting the establishment of communication between immobile or disabled people and their caretaker or nurse. The method how to do is described here. Messages can be easily sent to the nurse or caretaker simply by tilting the accelerometer that is joined with the mobile body part. The tilt angle is then sent to a controller which then communicates between the disabled person and the caretaker. It also takes appropriate decision to send the respective message according to the corresponding tilt. The message that is to be delivered can be shown on the LCD display. When the message is being displayed, the buzzer goes off to alert the caretaker or concerned person in case of any emergency. Hence project gives an effective, easy and a vital solution for many kinds of issues that the caretakers and nurses face for communicating with the patients that are disabled or immobile.
