Abstract:
The Internet of Things (IoT) involves the interconnection of devices and humans to the Internet. IoT is rapidly being adopted in different sectors of life, including the health sector. Numerous sensing devices are used to gather patients’ information, generating a large volume of data. The traditional applications and algorithms are not efficient in processing and managing the patients’ data, which presents a challenge. Much research on the Internet of Things in healthcare focuses mainly on hospitals with little focus on care homes. This research uses care homes as a case study as these are regarded as the homes of service users for an extended period of time, much longer than the time they spend in hospitals. This research proposes a system that would enable healthcare staff to monitor the pressure sores in service users with low mobility and provide them with a secured system against attacks from cyber criminals. The system implements the use of sensors to monitor pressure exerted from bedridden service users in real-time using ThingSpeak, provides a secure system by implementing two-factor authentication (2FA) for caregivers for safe login, transmitting data securely over a safe network using raspberry pi 4 as the edge devices, and applying machine learning to help monitor the network for intrusion detection from hackers. With the current gap in research in care homes, this paper emphasises the need for the adoption of real-time monitoring and having a secured system framework for care homes to improve their services provided.
