Abstract

Influent voices from different areas like government and insurance companies already realized the savings that could be done with remote health monitoring and assistance systems. The TV is still the technology that older adults feel more comfortable with, and therefore we present , a new prototype that perfectly integrates with TV viewing experience and uses this almost ubiquitous mean to provide some features that they really feel the need in their daily lives: health agenda, medication intake and vital sign measurement scheduling and alerts, vital sign monitoring, videoconference with doctors and other features that may be also useful for doctors like support for medical questionnaires and health videos.
