In the years, the role of measurement in medicine and
healthcare is becoming increasingly relevant, thanks to
the always-wider diffusion of electronics in everyday
life. In particular, measurement and sensors represent one of
the key aspects of what is called pervasive healthcare. Pervasive
healthcare may be defined as the application of pervasive
computing technologies for healthcare, as well as the way to
make healthcare available everywhere, anytime and to everyone,
and aims at changing the healthcare delivery model from
doctor-centric to patient-centric, from acute-reactive to continuous
preventing, and from sampling to monitoring .
