Mobile and Wearable P2P Information Management in HealthNet Applications

Year 2007

Health and mobility of elderly people is becoming a more and more important issue in Europe’s aging societies. New communication-based methods to provide health service with personal health care devices and services are considered promising elements of first-class medical care service for everybody. To achieve this vision, several technological issues have to be solved: (i) body sensors to monitor vital functions have to be developed; (ii) these sensors should be integrated into textile structures to guarantee ease of use and patient acceptance; (iii) the collected sensor data has to be analyzed to detect emergency situations and to reduce the data volume; (iv) relevant data has to be integrated with other information systems in the work environment of medical experts. These challenges are addressed within the HealthNet project at RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The goal of the project is to develop a framework in which health professionals can remotely monitor and diagnose mobile patients.
