Continuous, remote monitoring of patients' healthcare condition, as this can be reflected by crucial vital signs supervision, is a key demand in modern healthcare provision. Towards the accomplishment of this requirement, the traditional solution of cabled sensors appears to have clear limitations and this is one of the ultimate causes of the proliferation(More)
The formulation of a Personal Area Network (PAN), consisting of a wireless infrastructure of medical sensors, attached to patient's body, and a supervising device carried by them, lays the path for continuous and real-time monitoring of vital signs without discomforting the person in question. This infrastructure enhances the context of remote healthcare(More)
Diabetes is a serious world-wide medical challenge and there is a recognised need for improved diabetes care outcomes. This paper describes results of the EMPOWER project, to foster the self-management of diabetes patients by integration of existing and new services offered to patients after having been diagnosed with diabetes.

The continuous treatment of chronic diseases such as heart diseases, pulmonary disease and diabetes, relies on the patient's self-monitoring. The rapid advance in the development of telemedicine systems and monitoring devices during last years gave several solutions in continuous patient telemonitoring. However, in most of the cases, these systems work with(More)
The concept of a wireless integrated network of sensors, already applied in several sectors of our everyday life, such as security, transportation and environment monitoring, can as well provide an advanced monitor and control resource for healthcare services. By networking medical sensors wirelessly, attaching them in patient's body, we create the(More)
This paper presents a mobile and unobtrusive platform that enables the accurate monitoring of physical activities in daily life, and is integrated into a healthcare system supporting out-of-hospital services. The main focus of the paper is to describe and evaluate a complete data processing chain for recognizing different activities, and estimating their(More)
Introduction: Diabetes requires a high level of disease management to be executed by the patient himself in order to succeed in treatment and for improving or at least preserving his health status. Aim: The main objective of the presented project is to design and implement a web technology based application framework. It shall provide sufficient means for(More)
Power systems are undergoing massive operational and technological changes amid increasing demand for environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. The traditional supply-driven approach, relying on large-scale generation plants, which dominated old utilities is reconsidered to incorporate the increased penetration of variable renewable energy(More)
