dc.description.abstract Elder care is an area in modern society where a series of issues are encountered. There is a feasibility to find solutions pertaining to the issues of elder care by using wearable sensors and telemonitoring devices. This paper will discuss monitoring of critical diagnosis parameters of the elders who are bedridden using Internet of Things (IOT). A survey was conducted to identify the environmental factors which affect the elder care service and the management of sudden accident and making alarm under conditions of emergency. It was identified from the survey that blood pressure, body temperature, pulse rate, heart rhythm and Electro Cardio Graph (ECG) are highly important for diagnosis procedure by doctors. In the same way this parameter can be obtained via telemedicine even though the doctor is a long distance away from the patient. Further, elder care service providers can monitor many elders from a long distance by checking critical environmental factors such temperature, humidity and fall detection by using IOT. All these requirements can be fulfilled by confining all sensors in a wearable jacket. en_US
