Telemedicine systems use telecommunication resources in
order to improve medical practice. Information systems
are developed so as to help the clinical staff in the
performance of their duties: telemonitoring for instance
facilitates a much more efficient follow-up of the patients’
This work describes the Telemedicine system that is
currently being developed by our research team. It is a
distributed multiplatform system for the intelligent
telemonitoring of patients at an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
More specifically, this article focuses on our 3D
visualization module, which shows a virtual model of the
patient and allows the clinical staff to visualize in a rapid
and clear manner the patient´s evolution.
