Abstract

This paper presents a prototype developed in Python of a pervasive mobile health system aimed at monitoring a patient in indoor and outdoor environments continuously. The system is based on a Bluetooth PAN (Personal Area Network), worn by the patient, whose master node, a smartphone, collects information about patient's location and health status and detects emergency situations. These data are sent to a central server through Wi-Fi or GPRS/UMTS, which allows physicians to get access to patient data and configure the PAN sensors remotely using a conventional web browser.
