CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (CD) suppose, from the point of view of ITC , a real medical and technological challenge. Even more, given the complexity of this type of diseases and the associated co-morbidities, the medical area of the CD can contribute to strong benefits across the development and the system application for the care of the " Personal Health Care Systems "., when well designed and adapted to the needs of the users.
Inside this context, the research investigation and the technological development carried out in the project "Pulso a Punto" integrate the various strategic disciplines in this field, both from the medical point of view and from the sanitary existing policies. The final aim was the design, development and check of a platform of services that could in an easy, intuitive and simple way promote the care and improve the process of self-care for patients with cardiovascular chronic diseases in different stages of their day-by-day life. The knowledge and experience of the different members of the consortium allowed the development of an innovative platform that integrate last generation intelligent sensoactive textiles with electronics and communication. It approaches the different Use Cases defined in the project as well as future cases not specifically described. Especially, the Platform resulting from the project "Pulso a Punto" focus on the remote monitoring of the health status of patients with chronic diseases and under the risk of several complications.
