Abstract:Physical activity, therapy and exercising are essential for the management of many chronic conditions. This is why human motion tracking for healthcare applications has received significant attention recently. In this chapter we describe the architecture in which we provide a person-centric healthcare solution for patients with chronic conditions based on the recent advances in wireless inertial sensing systems. We emphasize the role of the home as care environment, by providing real-time support to patients in order to monitor, self-manage and improve their physical condition according to their specific situation.
