Mobile communication systems of today provide increased availability, minituarization and enhanced data rates. This emergence is expected to enhance the deployment of mobile systems in the health services. This paper intends to explain the medical mobile to Web service application developed using the Java Micro Edition (J2ME) application platform. It involves the development of a MySQL medical database for Alzheimer disease patients which is targeted to be accessed from a mobile device through Web services via servlets. The mobile application receives the information processed by the servlets and presents the information on the mobile device using mobile information device profile (MIDP). The application developed considers technical constraints of mobile devices such as limited display capabilities and memory. The system was emulated on J2ME device emulator and its functionality is presented in this paper.
