In health care there has been a growing interest and investment in various forms of constant individuals monitoring. The increasing of average life expectation and, consequently, the costs in health care due to elderly population are the motivation for this investment. However, health monitoring is not only important to elderly people, it can be also applied to people with cognitive disabilities.
