Project Sherpam (Sensors for HEalth Recording and Physical Activity Monitoring) aims to provide an open-source, flexible, customizable system to monitor the health condition of patients affected by chronic diseases during their day to day activities at home or out of home, while detecting and reacting to anomalies automatically. This paper presents the architecture of the flexible system that is being developed in the context of this project, and illustrates how this system could be used through a realistic use case.
