ABSTRACT
The deployment of pervasive computing in healthcare is challenging, but two recent case studies demonstrate that it can be done. Stroke Angel used a mobile stroke diagnosis and data transmission device for emergency medical services in a prehospital setting. In MS Nurses, the ActiBelt system helped analyze movement patterns of patients with multiple sclerosis. The results point out crucial factors for the adoption of pervasive computing in healthcare: proof of medical benefit, user participation, and financial clarification.
