Findings from Madrid Polytechnic University in Data Management Reported (A Lightweight Web of Things Open Platform to Facilitate Context Data Management and Personalized Healthcare Services Creation)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Data Management have been published. According to news originating from Madrid, Spain, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "In the last few years, many health monitoring systems have been designed to fullfil the needs of a large range of scenarios. Although many of those systems provide good ad hoc solutions, most of them lack of mechanisms that allow them to be easily reused."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Madrid Polytechnic University, "This paper is focused on describing an open platform, the micro Web of Things Open Platform (mu WoTOP), which has been conceived to improve the connectivity and reusability of context data to deliver different kinds of health, wellness and ambient home care services. mu WoTOP is based on a resource-oriented architecture which may be embedded in mobile and resource constrained devices enabling access to biometric, ambient or activity sensors and actuator resources through uniform interfaces defined according to a RESTful fashion. Additionally, mu WoTOP manages two communication modes which allow delivering user context information according to different methods, depending on the requirements of the consumer application."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It also generates alert messages based on standards related to health care and risk management, such as the Common Alerting Protocol, in order to make its outputs compatible with existing systems."
