The new advances in sensor technology, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless communications favor the development of a new type of monitoring system that can provide patients with assistance anywhere and at any time. Of particular interest are the monitoring systems designed for people that suffer from heart arrhythmias, due to the increasing(More)
Continuous pervasive monitoring has the potential to improve the quality of life of many persons (for example those who suffer from heart arrhythmias or elderly people who suffer from chronic diseases). We show the three main steps related to the monitoring process and supported by our system. First, how data are captured by sensors which send those data(More)
Innovation in the fields of wireless data communications, mobile devices and biosensor technology enables the development of new types of monitoring systems that provide people with assistance anywhere and at any time. In this paper we present an architecture useful to build those kind of systems that monitor data streams generated by biological sensors(More)
In this paper, we present an innovating on-line monitoring system that has been developed by applying new advances in biosensors, mobile devices and wireless technologies. The aim of the system is to monitor people that suffer from heart arrhythmias without having to be hospitalized; and therefore, living a normal life while feeling safe at the same time.(More)
The cardiovascular diseases and, in particular, diseases related to arrhythmias are a problem that affects a big percentage of the population, being one of the major cause of death in Europe. The new advances in the fields of PDAs, intelligent mobile phones, wireless communications and vital parameter sensors have permitted the development of revolutionary(More)

The new advances in sensor technology, PDAs and wireless communication favour the development of monitoring systems. In this context we have developed MOLEC, a system that monitors people that suffer from heart arrhythmias. It carries out three tasks: a) it captures the digital data sent by different sensors and transforms them into a concrete format; b) it(More)
MedfoLink is a software technology that applies novel system design to process and analyze text based medical reports. Through a multi-tier processing scheme, MedfoLink is able classify medical reports by various concepts (symptoms) and syndromes. The supply of symptom-based concepts is derived from the Unified Medical Language Source (UMLS). MedfoLink's(More)
