The Tele-Health WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network) Model for patients required more attention especially old age people’s healthcare services in Low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) Devices. The advancements in telemedicine have increased drastically towards wearable sensor devices and mobile phone-based applications in the last few years. The study presents the integration of IoT and wearable sensor devices in the Tele – Health system developed for tracking heart patients among the elderly people and also to prevent them from stroke. In order to meet the demand for old age people healthcare services, it is very much essential to provide assistance in cardiac disease diagnosis and suggest medication in their home with comfortable environment. Hence, they can avoid frequent visit to hospitals and long stays.
