The future of healthcare is based on new devices for a more accurate and personalized
diagnosis and treatment anywhere.
Shorter hospital stays and distribute assistance (Home Care) already represents the trend
in the development and management of national healthcare services. The consolidation of
such a scenario andits diffusion can be achieved only through the specific development of new
technologies oriented to support distributed monitoring of patients for disease prevention,
follow-up and rehabilitation. Such technologies can be integrated with the different mobile
communication networks that permeated our society. In a monitoring network context,
creating nodes with wearable monitoring systems and sensors probably represent a key
winning factor in order to provide easy-to-use, affordable and personalized solutions.
This chapter shows representative case studies to demonstrate the key role of the
wearable technologies in the provision of different health processes and services. We will
show the experiences in pre-term newborn monitoring, the quantitative approach to support
diagnosis in a rare but severe neurological pathology (Tourette Syndrome) and in a
Parkinson‘s Disease, and the multi-factorial analysis to optimize assistive technology.
