Breast cancer is the most common tumor in western women and statistically 1 out of 8 women will develop breast cancer over their lifetime. Once overcome it, the stage of rehabilitation that the patient should follow is critical to recover from the suffered disease. In this paper, a system composed of three applications, one for smartwatches, one for smartphones and a web application, is presented. Applications for handheld devices are directed to the patient who is undergoing rehabilitation and allow to monitor parameters of interest, such as the heart rate, energy expenditure and arm mobility, that will indicate whether the rehabilitation process being followed is improving the health of the patient or not. The web application is directed to a medical expert with the objective of tracking rehabilitation conducted by the patients.
