Abstract

This paper describes the research made on current mobile health monitoring systems targeting the elderly and the development of an elderly-oriented solution, serving as a proof-of-concept of the research done. It provides a scientific contribution by specifying a system with characteristics never combined before, when applied to the health monitoring of older adults. Also, a prototype for that system was developed and evaluated with its end users – the elderly.
