Tele-home care systems enable patients with chronic diseases to be remotely and constantly monitored by the healthcare staff reducing the need for frequent visits to the hospital. Besides the advantages for patients, this solution could also provide significant cost savings through the exploitation of low-cost equipment for simple physiological measurements to be performed at home, sending the recorded data to the healthier staff placed elsewhere. Tile aim of this work is the development of a low-cost tele-home care system based on the digital video broadcasting terrestrial (DVB-T) technology for the remote monitoring of cardiopathic and diabetic patients. Easy to use even by untrained or elderly people, such tele-home care system could represent the best solution in terms of simplicity, quality and costs.

Abstract

Tele-home care systems enable patients with chronic diseases to be remotely and constantly monitored by the healthcare staff reducing the need for frequent visits to the hospital. Besides the advantages for patients, this solution could also provide significant cost savings through the exploitation of low-cost equipment for simple physiological measurements to be performed at home, sending the recorded data to the healthier staff placed elsewhere. Tile aim of this work is the development of a low-cost tele-home care system based on the digital video broadcasting terrestrial (DVB-T) technology for the remote monitoring of cardiopathic and diabetic patients. Easy to use even by untrained or elderly people, such tele-home care system could represent the best solution in terms of simplicity, quality and costs.
