This paper describes a prototype system for continual health monitoring at home. The system consists of an unobtrusive wireless body area network (WBAN) and a home health server. The WBAN sensors monitor user's heart rate and locomotive activity and periodically upload time-stamped information to the home server. The home server may integrate this information into a local database for user's inspection or it may forward the information further to a medical server. The prototype may be used for ambulatory monitoring of patients undergoing cardiac rehabilitation or for monitoring of elderly at home by informal caregivers.
