—The emergence of wearable sensor mobile
technologies can have a great change to the conventional
healthcare systems improving the quality of life for patients with
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or heart disease. Our main aim
is to build a simple yet accurate mobile application that is
capable of real-time monitoring of patients with CAD which is a
major cause of death worldwide. Most available mobile
healthcare systems focus on the data acquisition part with little
attention paid to facilitating real-time. In this work, we build a
real-time monitoring application that continuously monitors
CAD patients and raises an alarm whenever an emergency
occurs. The proposed system is of a light weight, low price and
very reliable in the detection of heart problems based on
reasoning and computational algorithms. To prove the
effectiveness of the proposed system, we conducted two
extensive experiments for real and simulated scenarios. Our
results show that the proposed monitoring system provides a
100% detection rate.
