Abstract: Globally, Internet of things (IoT) is recieving a lot of popularity among its users, and it is the most popular new technology in the IT market. A few years back, it is hard to imagine that we can control our home appliances, physical devices, cars and other items remotely with our mobile phones but today it is possible because of IoT. We can instruct our appliances and devices even when we are not physically present there. This article gives the overall view of the Internet of things and also covers a case study of Back pain patients who can be diagnosed using IoT systems. The paper especially focuses on functionality and components of IoT and how it changes our daily life. In today’s society, it’s use is limited, but as we are moving towards device connectivity, in few years it is used almost everywhere. Treatment of vertebral column disorders remains a challenge for orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and paediatrics. In the paper, we have tried to analyze how IoT is used in Computer aided diagnostic systems using dataset of orthopedic patients and how an IoT system automatically decide on health of a patient.
