Semantic Sensor Networks for Personalized Health Systems for Risk Prevention

Teresa Meneu, Antonio Martínez, Carlos Fernández, Ainara Gonzalez, Vicente Traver

Abstract

Monitoring of health related parameters, behaviours, signs and symptoms in patients with diagnosed conditions is still a challenging issue. This is evident, if not because the need of more advanced sensing technologies, also due to the intrusiveness and the excessive technological component of the more trivial solutions proposed. Personal Health Systems (PHS) normally share a common architecture based in a closed-loop approach, combining monitoring and feedback to different levels of care. This model can be easily exported as the base for more open scenarios. More extensively developed semantic sensor networks need to be developed to face the challenges and requirements of more open scenarios for health related monitoring in personalized systems.
