They would recommend it to their friends that have a heart condition. The survey contains several questions about the Holter monitor. 5%) compared to a Holter monitor. 6% find the PHM more comfortable than a Holter monitor which surprises us. A possible explanation can be that we use a fairly bulky phone (i-mate JasJam) and patients do not use this as their daily phone therefore carrying 2 mobile phones which might have an impact on the comfort. In the near future we migrate to a far slimmer mobile phone (HTC Diamond) which will hopefully improve the comfort level.

Hence it is more likely that their user will want to personalize them and their Design Challenges for Mobile Assistive Technologies 19 Table 1.

32–39, 2009. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2009 Trial Results of a Novel CRM System Using Smart Phones and Wireless ECG Sensors 33 The Personal Health Monitor system developed by our team at the University of Technology, Sydney is a flexible CRM system that can be used either as a Holter monitor or an event monitor. The system is different from conventional Holter and Event monitor systems since it uses standard mobile phones and wireless ECG sensors. It is not limited to just recording ECG arrhythmias but offers a range of other functionalities, that make it a personal health monitoring system for people that need to make life style changes such as lose weight, lower the blood pressure or monitor their blood glucose level.
