Ubiquitous tele-care (u-Telecare) is a migration from tele-health and mobile health (m-Health) for continuous care. The u-Telecare is quite adaptable in the user environment which owns specific attributes, such as telecommunication, highly mobility, and medical care. Based on the preliminary survey and evaluation, some innovative software applications can support mobile nursing carts (MNC) for nurses, handheld devices for physicians, hospice care for terminal cancer patients, and home care devices for chronic diabetic patients. The research findings discovered that software defined radio (SDR) is a feasible solution and can be implemented for handling the physical layer of the multi-wireless communication standards. In this paper, we propose an ubiquitous seamless MNC (u-SMNC), which provides agile and high quality software focusing on the design and application implementation in order to supply an experimental software platform that allows MNCs and physician's handheld devices.
