Medical care is no longer limited to specific times and places. Through the portable and wearable devices combined with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, we can collect personal biomedical information, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen, respiratory rate, vital capacity and psychological index, anytime and anywhere, and transmit them to the cloud database and remote server through the network to store and analyze as future smart medical care applications. This not only eliminates the inconvenience of many measurement and record for patients and caregivers, but also ensures the correctness of the data. This study intends to use the IoT as the basis, applies communication technology, and combines with Arduino Pro Mini microcontroller and biomedical signal measurement sensors to complete the construction of a mobile biomedical measuring device for the measurement of blood oxygen, heart pulse and body temperature.
