The IoThealth-care supporting for disabled peoples is an important milestone in technological advancement. In this paper, it is developed a mobile Health-care app, called M-Health, on the system using iPhone with smart Apple watch to help seniors to manage their health life. The proposed M-Health measures the heart rate and notifies to emergency contacts, when it is abnormal. The notification can be a call, SMS, email, or a combination of them. The M-Health suggests the users to take optimum dosage of medicine. This reminds the users to move out for a walk and suggests to perform optimum exercise.Also, it records, heart rate of a patient and sends to the physician periodically. Simulation results shows that, it is beneficial with better performance in avoiding end-to-end delay, resulting excellent throughput of achieving the goal of serving the health-care to the blind, disabled and elderly peoples in time. The results also shows that it is less prone to failure addressing probability of fog computing in IoTenvironment.
