Abstract The concept behind the MobiHealth project (MobiHealth, 2002) was to bring together the technologies of Body Area Networks (BANs), wireless broadband communications and wearable devices to provide mobile healthcare services for patients and health professionals. For patients, these technologies enable remote patient care services such as management of chronic conditions and detection of health emergencies. For health professionals the technology offers access to information and communication services from a mobile device, thus enabling mobility for the individual professional and supporting the operation of distributed ‘virtual' healthcare teams (sensu Pitsillides, 1999).
