Abstract

Nowadays the upsurge in the prevalence of chronic diseases represents an increasing burden on individuals and society. Chronic diseases can require repeated and frequent hospital treatment to control vital parameters of interest. The use of automatic instruments for a real-time monitoring of biological parameters constitutes a valid instrument to improve the patient’s quality of life. The integration of mobile communications with wearable devices has facilitated the shift of healthcare assistance from clinic-centric to patient-centric monitoring. In this paper, a real-time monitoring system is proposed. The system is conceptualized to provide an instrument for patients, by means of which they can easily monitor, analyse and save their own vital signs using wearable sensors and an Android device such as a smartphone or tablet, offering an efficient solution in terms of a decrease in time, human error and cost.
