Description

The objective of MAS is to develop a common communication platform and nanoelectronics
circuits for health and wellness applications to support the development of flexible, robust,
safe and inexpensive mobile AAL systems, to improve the quality of human life and improve
the well-being of people.
In this context, reference architectures will be defined in order to enable system development
from devices to complete mobile AAL systems, and to enable cooperative clusters of such
systems for specific environments and applications.
MAS focuses on the development of an integrated approach for the areas of health
monitoring and therapy support at home, and mobile health, wellness and fitness. The
systems are intended for remote patient supervision using multi parameter biosensors and
secure communication networks, and health&wellness monitoring in the home environment.
The mixed healthcare and consumer markets will be targeted with MAS-platform-based
devices with five application demos:
1: Health and Activity Monitor
2: Point of Care Terminal and Gateway
3: Cardiovascular Monitor
4: Diabetes Monitor
5: Mobile Cardiotocography
The key developments will address mobile, unobtrusive sensor systems with standardized
interfaces linked by secure wireless communication to a managing controller. User friendly
interfaces, multiple heterogeneous sensors networks, low power and power management
form key elements of the platform. Seamless connectivity, interoperability and cooperation
across mobile AAL systems, health service providers and patient will be field-tested in
different environments.
