Organizing, tracking, monitoring, and acting upon personal health and especially cognitive and physical training information has nowadays become a necessary and important procedure. This is true particularly for special groups of people with cognitive or physical impairments (or both). Elderly people with mild cognitive impairments, autistic children and other categories of people with impairments may obtain benefits by having their daily cognitive and physical activity been monitored. This piece of work, proposes an approach towards a solution for a physical and cognitive medical record held upon the cloud, and accessed through web services. In this way, various semantically described exercises and training platforms may exchange information with the record system and access user performance results obtained in the context of a standardized description of exercises with suitably associated results and scores.
