Senior health medical alert monitors are critical to improving health care among the elderly while assuring caregivers that seniors are safe. Despite seniors' use of medical alert bracelets, necklaces and other medical alert devices, more robust wireless systems, as being developed in the WHM project, not only improves senior health care monitoring but, in the long term, may lead to earlier discovery of chronic conditions that affect senior health as people age. In the WHM project we in particular evaluate chemotherapy and haemodialysis.
