This article aims to develop a minimally intrusive system of care and monitoring. Furthermore, the goal is to get a cheap, comfortable and, especially, efficient system which controls the physical activity carried out by the user. All this, is based on the data of accelerometry analysis which are obtained through a mobile phone.

Besides this, we will develop a comprehensive system for consulting the activity obtained in order to provide families and care staff an interface through which to observe the condition of the individual subject to monitoring.
