Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), Treatment, Diagnosis, Challenges


The evolution and digitalisation of the world have brought an innovative machine-to-machine (M2M) communication system that is called the Internet of Things (IoT). Internet of Things refers to the idea that everything is machine operated and one machine communicates with the other machine to carry out the basic functions. After the success of the Internet of Things (IoT), it started spreading its branches in different fields. Similarly, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is also one of its most successful branches. It aids in the monitoring of chronic and critical diseases remotely. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is playing a huge role in the medical department by not only diagnosing the disease but also saving the lives of people by providing treatments and urgent care at the time of casualties and emergencies. It has provided dozens of benefits to the medical department yet it needs to overcome a few challenges that create blockage in the way of IOMT. This paper will discuss the recent advances and future applications of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) in terms of the success and progress along with the challenges it faced as these factors have a vital role in the field.
