Abstract: Geriatric people are more prone to physiological imbalances due to the effect of aging. They face many problems in their day to day life which are needed to be solved before any serious complication arises. Most of the geriatric people are not getting adequate healthcare especially in case of old age homes the manager has to visit them in person to check their condition. Thus, providing them with remote and quick access to healthcare has become crucial. Our work focuses on, design of Internet of Things based vital parameter monitor for geriatric people along with Ambulance alert system. This device helps the old age home managers to monitor the condition of the patients with the help of an application. Based on Internet of Things technology, the application gets the temperature and SpO2 data of a patient and in case of emergency, nearby ambulances are tracked and alerted to save the lives. In addition, it will also be useful for contactless monitoring of patients who are affected by COVID-19 virus.
