Definitions:Personal Health Systems (PHS) assist in the provision of continuous, quality controlled, and personalised health services to empowered individuals regardless of location. They consist of:
a) Ambient and/or body devices (wearable, portable or implantable), which acquire, monitor and communicate physiological parameters and other health related context of an individual (e.g., vital body signs, biochemical markers, activity, emotional and social state, environment);
b) Intelligent processing of the acquired information and coupling of it with expert biomedical knowledge to derive important new insights about individual’s health status.
c) Active feedback based on such new insights, either from health professionals or directly from the devices to the individuals, assisting in diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation as well as in disease prevention and lifestyle management.
