The present concept of U-Healthcare is based on treatment, recuperation and in the future it will become specialized as wellness based on prevention. It is predicted that wellness care among others will develop to become the key field of U-Healthcare. For this reason in this research, ubiquitous technology was grafted to the passometer (P-meter) which is frequently used for monitoring during existing walking exercises. Emerging from the existing method of the passometer (P-meter) which simply calculates the amount of exercise by counting the number of steps taken, using the GPS incoming data, the distance and speed of the location changes is calculated and the acceleration sensor will reflect the steps and intensity of movement to measure the walking activity amount to realize a smart walker system which will help the maintenance and promotion of modernists health, this study case also will be supported in building healthcare environment through scenario bases on u-healthcare environment in ICT modern life style.
