Abstract
Home TeleCare proved to reduce mortality rate and
hospitalizations costs for various groups of chronic
patients. In this context, the aim of the work now reported
is to develop a dual channel smart sensor embedded in a
wheelchair to provide information on the health status of
patients with chronic diseases by measuring
photoplethismography and skin conductivity. Elements of
the embedded system design, software implementation
and some results for an established voluntary group are
included in the paper
