Abnormal temperature of human body is a natural extensive indicator of illness. Infrared thermography (IRT) is a fast, non-invasive, non-contact and passive substitution to ordinary medical thermometers for monitoring and observation human body temperature. Aside from, IRT is able to chart body surface heat remotely. Last five decades testified a stationary development in thermal imaging cameras utilization to obtain relations between the thermal physiology and surface temperature. IRT has effectively used in diagnosis and detection of breast cancer, diabetes neuropathy and peripheral vascular disorders. It has been employed to detect issues related to gynecology, dermatology, heart, neonatal physiology, and brain imaging. With the advent of modern infrared cameras, data acquisition and processing techniques, it is now possible to have real time high resolution thermographic images, which is likely to surge further research in this field. The emergent technology known as the Internet of Things (IoT) has guided practitioners, physicians and researchers to design innovative solutions in different environments, particularly in medical and healthcare using smart sensors, computer networks and a remote server. This paper aims to propose IoT-enabled medical system enables diagnostics and detection for several medical anomalies remotely; in real-time and simultaneous depend on combination of IoT and Thermal Infrared imaging techniques. It will detect and diagnostics any abnormal and alert the user through IoT remotely and in real-time.
