Abstract

Lack of physical activity can cause obesity, diabetes, hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. To prevent these diseases, experts recommend regular physical exercise. In this paper, a Smart Personal Activity Monitoring System (SPAMS) is proposed in order to enhance the effectiveness of physical activities. The proposed system consists of a Physical Activity Measurement Device (PAMD), a Physical Activity Computation Device (PACD) and a Device Management Server (DMS). The proposed system offers personalized exercise programs based on individual body characteristics, and a remote device management service operated by system administrators, using a wireless device management method, specifically Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Device Management (DM), as it is the international de facto standard for mobile device management. In this paper, we present a practical method for using OMA DM to personalize and manage the SPAMS and also present the implementation results.
