Fasidi FO and Adebayo OT

Chronic diseases are leading to high cost of health care. Adoption of mobile phone with the evolution of real time monitoring of patients in their locality using sensors can reduce the rate of death occurrence from asthma. This paper presents a wearable sensor for monitoring heart rate, air quality, humidity and temperature known for triggering asthma attack. The system design and the architecture involve the relationship between the wearable device, the mobile device, the central storage and the stakeholders. The experimental testing from this system revealed that mobility monitoring devices are very feasible for monitoring the daily health status of an asthma patient.
