A Non Invasive, Wearable Sensor Platform for Multi-parametric Remote Monitoring in CHF Patients
The ageing of European population is now requiring novel solutions that help the healthcare systems face the new challenges. Novel monitoring solutions, combining state-of-the-art technologies will take a main role in the new healthcare models. In the present paper a prototype of an implemented non-invasive, wearable sensor platform for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients is shown and described. The platform monitors all the required parameters from sensors, collects and processes the data in a mobile platform and sends the data to a server.
