Abstract

In recent years the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved to connect commercial gadgets together with the medical field to facilitate an unprecedented range of accessibility. The development of medical devices connected to internet of things has been praised for the potential of alleviating the strain on the modern healthcare system by giving users the opportunity to reside in the home during treatment or recovery. With the IoT becoming more prevalent and available at a commercial level, there exists room for integration into emerging, intelligent environments such as smart homes. When used in tandem with conventional healthcare, the IoT offers a vast range of custom-tailored treatment options. This paper studies recent state-of-the-art research on the field of IoT for health monitoring and smart homes, examines several potential use-cases of blending the technology, and proposes integration with an existing smart home testbed for further study. Challenges of adoption and future research on the topic are also discussed.
