Pervasive healthcare is the conceptual system of providing healthcare to anyone, at anytime, and anywhere by removing restraints of time and location while increasing both the coverage and the quality of healthcare. Pervasive Healthcare Computing is at the forefront of this research, and presents the ways in which mobile and wireless technologies can be used to implement the vision of pervasive healthcare. This vision includes prevention, healthcare maintenance and checkups; short-term monitoring (home healthcare), long-term monitoring (nursing home), and personalized healthcare monitoring; and incidence detection and management, emergency intervention, transportation and treatment. The pervasive healthcare applications include intelligent emergency management system, pervasive healthcare data access, and ubiquitous mobile telemedicine. Pervasive Healthcare Computing includes the treatment of several new wireless technologies and the ways in which they will implement the vision of pervasive healthcare.

E-Health applications facilitate the exchange of information between clinicians or between institutions, reducing costs, extending the scope and reach of medical facilities, enhancing the quality of service offered on- and off-site, and provides new means of medical supervision and preemptive medicine. Currently, the integration of medical networking and medical information systems is treated as an obvious need; standalone medical networking environments are no longer a reality and the term "telemedicine" is in practice used interchangeably with e-Health.This book provides an overview of the field of Networked e-health applications and telemedicine and its supporting technologies. Chapters focus on signals, signal processing, electroencephalogram (EEG) and the Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), medical imaging, as well as a look at medical signal processing and classification from the point of view of urgent medical support, where not every possible type of medical equipment is readily available. Also covered is the encoding for transmission of medical data. Compression is of central importance, as is loss of information and ways to minimize it. The final section of the book addresses the design, implementation, and operation of e-Health systems.

Learn How to Design and Implement HAR Systems The pervasiveness and range of capabilities of today’s mobile devices have enabled a wide spectrum of mobile applications that are transforming our daily lives, from smartphones equipped with GPS to integrated mobile sensors that acquire physiological data. Human Activity Recognition: Using Wearable Sensors and Smartphones focuses on the automatic identification of human activities from pervasive wearable sensors—a crucial component for health monitoring and also applicable to other areas, such as entertainment and tactical operations. Developed from the authors’ nearly four years of rigorous research in the field, the book covers the theory, fundamentals, and applications of human activity recognition (HAR). The authors examine how machine learning and pattern recognition tools help determine a user’s activity during a certain period of time. They propose two systems for performing HAR: Centinela, an offline server-oriented HAR system, and Vigilante, a completely mobile real-time activity recognition system. The book also provides a practical guide to the development of activity recognition applications in the Android framework.
