MOBILE HEALTH MONITORING PLATFORM FOR AAL APPLICATIONS

J. Festa, C. Silva, P. M. Mendes

Abstract

Mobile devices able to monitor diverse health condition parameters are becoming widely available. Also, mobile devices with wireless communications with significant computing capability (e.g., tablets, smartphones) are becoming available every time everywhere. Placing such devices to operate together will allow to deploy the so called ambient assisted living technologies, which allows for individual health condition monitoring almost everywhere and any time required. This paper presents a solution able to monitor several physiological parameters using the mobile platforms running android. The implemented solution permits to integrate transparently services from remotely distributed devices.
