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’ evolution. 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.
