Abstract

In this chapter we present a mobile phone platform that supports healthcare applications. The mobile platform facilitates wireless reading of small sensors embedded in everyday objects and turns the mobile phone into a gateway to medical centres. Parallel to the technical development of the architecture and the sensor technologies we have studied possible usages in healthcare applications. We have studied three different concepts that utilize small sensors: Smart Pillbox, Sleep Quality Logger and Assistive Listening Device. These application possibilities have been illustrated as scenarios and proof of concepts to study user acceptance. User evaluations included scenario surveys and laboratory tests with real users. We present in this chapter the applications and evaluations results as well as discuss the results and present a characterization of end user requirements, conclusions, and recommendations for future work.
