This paper presents a Medicine/Engineering multidisciplinary research project, in which a European Telecardiology system has been developed for the continuing monitoring of patients using GPRS/GSM. The system consists in a portable terminal and a call center that provide 24h-duty medical supervision and assistance. The system includes advanced signal processing for the recognition of cardiac pathologies using neural networks, compression with wavelets, encryption and GPS to locate the patient in case of fading. The main requirements for this project have been its technical and economical viability and the user's acceptance of the system. The results obtained validate the system, showing its transnational supervision and remote attendance capability. The main achievements generate ambient intelligence and can be easily applied to other telemedical fields. This research project has been partially funded by the European Union under the VFP Information Society Technologies programme (IST-2001-35073)
