About 2% of the population suffer from heart failure, which is a disease associated with high mortality. We have developed a measurement platform including an interpretation tool for heart failure patients where physiological signals can be acquired and on which signal analysis techniques can be implemented. The platform can also be used to store patient data, to enable comparison over time and invoke distance consultation if necessary. In this platform, we have implemented a tool for interpretation support of the data measured from the patient. This tool are intended for use in home health care as an aid for monitoring and follow up heart failure patients.
