One of major requirements of the electronic memory aid system is to provide a simple way to set valid tasks for patients with memory disturbances. This article is discussing application of templates for task description to solve this problem, the presentation of templates as JDOM at run time and as XML documents in their persistent form, and application of XSLT transformations to obtain the final description of tasks for mobile devices.
