Abstract

In recent years, technological advances induced by the Internet of Things paradigm have led to the development and diffusion of remote healthcare monitoring systems, known as e-health or telemedicine. The positive repercussions of these new technologies are multiple in terms of people's health and economic benefits. 'Remote medicine' reduces the need of hospital admissions, allowing the specialist to monitor the necessary biomedical parameters from home or workplace, thus optimizing the time and commitment of patients and health professionals. Furthermore, there is a psychological benefit, i.e., remote monitoring allows patients to live their lives more serenely and comfortably, respecting better therapeutic indications. In this framework, the present contribution discusses in detail the Chroma project: a new medical obstetrics device for the remote measuring and transmitting of pregnant women's biomedical parameters based on cardiotocography technology and developed at the Department of Architecture and Industrial Design of the University of Campania 'Luigi Vanvitelli'.
