The Internet of Things has played an essential role in many industries over the past few decades. Recent advances in the healthcare industry have made it possible for more people to access healthcare and improve their overall health. Not only is health awareness growing, but mobile information devices are increasingly being used for instant access to health information and fitness applications. The use of mobile communication devices for medical communication is also increasing. Various new sensing devices will be used in remote health monitoring and nursing, especially for sensing various physiological parameters of the elderly and the construction of ubiquitous health networks, which will be a big field of the application of the Internet of things.
