MobiHealth is a mobile healthcare project funded by the European Commission.
The MobiHealth consortium unites 14 partners from five European countries and represents all the relevant disciplines.
Partners include: hospitals and medical service providers, universities, mobile network operators, mobile application service providers and mobile infrastructure and hardware suppliers.
The MobiHealth system allows patients to be fully mobile whilst undergoing health monitoring.
The patients wear a lightweight monitoring system - the MobiHealth BAN (Body Area Network) - which is customized to their individual health needs.
Therefore, a patient who requires monitoring for short or long periods of time doesn't have to stay in hospital for monitoring. With the MobiHealth BAN the patient can be free to pursue daily life activities.
