Abstract

Human falls are injurious for paralysed and those who recently undergone surgery. This causes serious issues if left unnoticed. The Ultimate aim of the project is to overcome this issue by alerting the caretakers of the patients. When the patient gets a fall an alert message is sent to the caretaker through Smartphone SMS service with the help of GSM Modem. The exact location of the patient can be determined based on Latitude and Longitude positioning through GPS. This system paves way for remote health care. This technique is used in real time applications for doctors to treat the patient in critical situations.
