The first aid and immediately help are very important in an accident. The earlier detection and treatment we do, the better prognosis and health patients have. In the senior populations, it is more important. Once seniors have an accident, not only physically injure in their body, but also mental and social ability, and may have severe sequela. Concerning about these populations, this research design a simple, practical, and portable device of real-time monitoring body activity with sphygmomanometer and pulsimeter. When an accident occurs, the signals go through mobile phone, immediately notify the remote ends and provide first time help.
