Abstract

In the last years, much work has been done to create a complete solution in m-Health environments. The problem can be summarized as follows: any health professional (medical specialist, sport trainer, nutritionist, etc.) should be able to control a series of measurements related to a person’s health. The characteristics of these people vary from those patients with limited knowledge of the control processes and low mobility to sportsmen highly involved in the process and great mobility in the moment the measurements take place. This wide set of characteristics raises two basic challenges: the use of measurement equipment easily adaptable to the control system and the necessity of adding mobility support mechanisms to the design. This chapter focuses on studying these two challenges, illustrates them with several use cases and contributes to the mobility support problem with a new algorithm.
