This paper proposes and explores the design of a system that includes sensor-based procedures and techniques for remote physiological sensing and functional assessment for these individuals. The remote monitoring (e.g. heart rate, SpOz level) and assessment system (6-minute walk test) was developed to support the recovery of survivors following a critical illness after their hospital discharge. The paper suggests a new model of care, through a clinician-patient remote monitoring loop, that will enable minimisation of the cost of frequent home visits and allow patients to recover safely in their home environment. © 2012 IEEE.
