In Japan, hospital or welfare office home helpers provide home welfare and care services, such as cooking, bathing, washing, cleaning and shopping, for the elderly. We have developed a Web-based home welfare and care services request system using wireless Internet mobile phones and Internet client computers; it employs a pen type image sensor for the elderly people to enter their handwritten care requests. The client computer sends the requests to the server computer in the home helper central office, and then the server computer automatically transfers them to the home helper's mobile phone. This newly-developed home welfare and care services request system is easily operated by elderly persons.
