This is a nursing home in Wuxi, East China's Jiangsu province, which has managed to improve its elderly care services with a host of IoT applications.

For example, they use an intelligent mattress that can automatically measure the vital signs of the person using it, including their heartbeat and breathing rate, without the need for human intervention.

Data is then sent via wifi to a central monitoring platform so that caretakers can check a person's health in real-time.
