The ageing population has become a serious issue around the world and this may cause several problems such as the elderly living alone and the long-term care for old people. Not only their physical demands, but also their mental problems like feeling isolated. Care chair is designed for the elderly who live alone. This chair is provided with I.O.T. technology in order to contact their family even the previous generation doesn't live together.
