This paper presents, a pervasive mobile health device that can help patients with life-threatening allergies to manage their health in normal life and in emergency scenarios. With mobile context-aware smartphone technology, personal wireless networks and Web-based interfaces, it is being designed to encourage the patient and their carers to learn about and safely manage their allergies and health. The design also includes an alarm that can be generated from sensed context so that if an anaphylactic reaction occurs, carers could be alerted or emergency services could be contacted.
