06 May On the Integration of Wearable Sensors in IoT Enabled mHealth and Quantified-self Apps
The regular use of activity trackers and biosignal sensors from non-professional users is constantly increasing, while for patients with chronic diseases has already become part of their daily routine for a continuous assessment of their health condition. However, the integration of such devices into larger systems such as health monitoring stations or assisted living applications is not straightforward due to a series of business, operational and technical issues which introduce extreme complexity for end-users and developers to properly support their diverse functionally and features. This work presents a thorough analysis of the aforementioned issues, proposes a generic integration solution for Bluetooth devices and evaluates the respective prototype implementations for Android and Linux systems.
