Analyzing environmental conditions and vital signs to increase healthy living

  • Present demographic change and a growing population of elderly people leads to new medical needs. Meeting these with state of the art technology is as a consequence a rapidly growing market. So this work is aimed at taking modern concepts of mobile and sensor technology and putting them in a medical context. By measuring a user’s vital signs on sensors which are processed on a Android smartphone, the target system is able to determine the current health state of the user and to visualize gathered information. The system also includes a weather forecasting functionality, which alerts the user on possibly dangerous future meteorological events. All information are collected centrally and distributed to users based on their location. Further, the system can correlate the client-side measurement of vital signs with a server-side weather history. This enables personalized forecasting for each user individually. Finally, a portable and affordable application was developed that continuously monitors the health status by many vital sensors, all united on a common smartphone.
