In: ICCASA 2014 Conference Proceedings, ELLCAMA Workshop. Experiences and Lessons Learnt from State-of-the-Art Context Aware Mobile Applications (ELLCAMA-2014) located at 3rd ACM International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications (ICCASA) October 15-16 Dubai United Arab Emirates ACM Digital Library 2014.


In this paper we introduce two real-world examples of successful deployments of ubiquitous monitoring technology in mental care: one related to monitoring elderly dementia patients at a nursing home and one to the diagnosis of manic and depressive episodes in bipolar disorder patients. We will elaborate the most relevant challenges that had to be dealt with and introduce the solutions that helped us to overcome them.
