This paper discusses a personalized heart monitoring system using smart phones and wireless (bio) sensors. Based on several scenarios we present the functionality of a prototype we have built. The application is capable of monitoring the health of high risk cardiac patients. The smart phone application analyses in real-time sensor and environmental data and can automatically alert the ambulance and pre assigned caregivers when a heart patient is in danger. It also transmits sensor data to a healthcare centre for remote monitoring by a nurse or cardiologist. The system can be personalized and rehabilitation programs can monitor the progress of a patient. Rehabilitation programs can be used to give advice (e.g. exercise more) or to reassure the patient.
