A Study on the Mobile Device using an Environmental Information–Collecting Sensor


Objectives: This paper aims to enable the convenient health management of elders and to inform the time of activity. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To measure the precise environmental information of the peripheral areas of the elders’ residence, not in the weather center faraway, the sensor is installed to detect fine dust, temperature and humidity. The sensor is installed not for individuals but for the welfare institution to be managed and the environmental information values collected in the welfare institution are transferred to each user Tab. The goal of this study is to enable the elders to live conveniently and to obtain accurate values. Findings: The service proposed in this study is a health keeper service that can provide safety as well as health management to the elders. It is a service where the welfare institution (administrator) consults with the users to enable systematic management according to the collected information and consultation contents and it is a safety and health management system that collects the outside activity value of the user through the environmental data value of the user’s region and through the device. The mobile health monitoring system proposed in this study aims not to provide emergency care to a user in a specific space, but to quickly inform about an emergency situation in any space. The system proposed in this study uses a mobile device, which is a small device that can be carried with the smartphone. The mobile device has the advantages of reducing the sense of alienation that the socially vulnerable class feels by providing companion helper service and of preventing social problems through conversation with the volunteer or the guardian. Application/Improvements: The health information of the middle-aged class can be collected to be utilized in a Big Data form and can be induced to enable active management through real-time feedback.
