With the advancement in technology, Internet of Things (IoT) enabled solutions are gaining lots of attention. The change in lifestyle of people leads to increase in health problems, which demands a need for ubiquitous healthcare system. In this paper, the work of various contemporary authors has been reviewed in different healthcare sectors. Further, smart bed model is proposed for addressing acute health problem of pressure ulcers or bed sores. The sensor based platform will collect and analyse the data using learning algorithm and accordingly will activate the actuators to distribute the pressure along the patient bed sores from time to time.
