Abstract

In recent years, personalised health is rapidly gaining momentum as a result of advances in various technological areas, prevailing amongst them the ICT domain. However, the new applications are still mostly a dream for the majority of the world population due to cost and infrastructure constraints. We present here initial findings of a low cost, low power, backbone free pHealth solution, suitable for rural areas of developing countries. This work constitutes the technology core of a wider initiative, CLAP, that we envision as a turnaround approach on the way health and quality of life in these areas of the world are being addressed.
