SENSECARE - Real-time Location-based Health Monitoring System

Abstract

This paper presents an application capable of monitoring the activity of a user in real time. Our work relies on a mobile phone since most users already have one and usually take it with them everywhere they go. Our system makes use of a pulse oximeter connected to the phone to register physiological parameters and sends them to a coordination centre. Other users, such as doctors or carers, can download health data from the coordination center. The result is a report on the route followed by the user with geo-referenced physiological parameters shown in real time. A Geographic Information System (GIS) was used as support. This standard-based report can be visualized with various compatible GIS. We have used Google Earth due to its public and free accessibility.
