Paper discusses the design and development of a 24-hour continuous health monitoring system for older people with disabilities. The system consists of three parts: (1) a system that measures biosignals, (2) a monitoring system for caregivers, and (3) a client/server personal computer for processing and storing information regarding client history. The biosignal measurement system utilizes electromyograph, electroencephelogram, and echocardiogram signals, as well as body temperature and blood pressure measures. The measurement data are sent to the client/server system via Bluetooth wireless technology. For caregivers, the health monitoring system is connected with an e-mail server and a cellular telephone. Caregivers can access the server via restricted password to monitor clients’ conditions. The system was created at the Department of Control and Instrumentation Engineering at Seoul National University of Technology in Seoul, Korea.
