Abstract

Personal connected health technologies are fast becoming integral in a person’s daily life to help improve their health and wellbeing. Aside from the ubiquitous personal fitness devices applications, there are numerous monitoring devices for personal healthcare, along with more proactive devices that enable users to engage in self-therapeutic techniques in order to improve their overall wellbeing. In this chapter, we provide a broad overview for a range of devices that allow people to monitor their own health and also those that provide self-therapeutic benefits using biofeedback or neurofeedback to learn to control their own physiologic functions. We discuss such devices within the context of the access to data and provide a taxonomy that covers the software for data integration, the type of connectivity and user interfaces for data collection, API authentication and authorization, and data access policies and formats.
