Abstract

The growing number of elderly people with health issues is the consequence of the increase in life expectancy. Tele-homecare applications have already reported promising results on reducing health care costs and improving quality of life. In this study, we present the SMARTA platform ( www.​smarta-project.​it): a fully integrated system capable to monitor its user’s health condition. The latest telemedicine and wearable technologies have been used to make cooperating users and caregivers. The system integrates wearable (ECG and accelerometry), non-wearable (temperature, weight, blood pressure etc.) and environmental (light, refrigerator etc.) sensors.
