Towards healthcare based on ubiquitous computing

Ubiquitous computing provides a pervasive networked human-computer interaction using many computational devices simultaneously in such a “transparent” way that the user may not need to be aware of how many devices involved in the use. With the rapid development of internet technologies, mobile phones and GPS, ubiquitous computing will be in every corner in our everyday life. On the other hand, ubiquitous computing for healthcare makes regular people able to afford continuous wellness maintenance and real-time illness diagnosis. With ubiquitous healthcare, trainees/patients can consult professional coaches/therapists through worldwide network and computational devices at all scales. This briefing article can be viewed as a piece of introductory work for the principles of healthcare based on ubiquitous computing, towards which our initial ubiquitous fitness instrument system was exhibited in World IT Show 2010, Seoul.
