Abstract

More than two billions people use mobile phones in the world of today. The mobile phones are not just potable telephones but portable computers which have WWW browsers with multi-task OS. In this paper, we specifically examine the possibility of mobile healthcare services by using everyday mobile phones. We describe a prototype system of the mobile healthcare services. It consists of the following components which cooperatively work with mobile phones: wireless biological sensors, mobile sensor routers, and sensor middleware. The service of the system aims to maintain and improve user’s condition by monitoring one’s biological sensing data, such as ECG, skin temperature, and body movement.
