Abstract

In this paper, we present the application of computing technology to determine the wellness of the elderly living independently in their home. There is a world-wide tendency to transform the approach national healthcare systems treat elderly patients, as more and more people prefer to stay in their homes, but they still need professional medical supervision. Thus, monitoring important daily activities through the observation of everyday object usages is one the ways to let know medical personnel about the activities of the patients, and if there is a problem - a nurse or doctor can adequately respond in a timely fashion. The significance advancements of information technology, electronics and communications system has developed a smart monitoring system for independent living so that the cost of medical care can be drastically reduced by taking care in advance as well as not to allow the inhabitant to have long-term healthcare.
