Abstract

Pervasive healthcare applications help to improve elderly and needy persons habitability by assisting them in living autonomously, and letting them participate in social communities and family life. These applications are often highly complex. The data gained from many wireless sensors running on different sensor platforms is usually further processed and interpreted by machine learning and pattern recognition components. The complexity of these systems stems from different types of environmental and vital parameters, different sampling rates, heterogeneous sensor platforms, unreliable network connections, as well as different programming languages that must be tailored to the use-case and the application environment. For further development decisions and to improve existing pervasive healthcare applications is the analysis and evaluation of known approaches a well known method. In this paper we present an evaluation framework for pervasive healthcare applications, which allows us to separate different approaches and discuss important aspects.
