Mobile Health System is a Smartphone-based open distributed System to provide monitoring services for specific group of people through near field communication and computer network information technology. It plays an important role in fields such as preventive medicine. In preventive medicine application, the most challenging thing is to realize real-time and lasting monitoring of life parameters like breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and movement by connecting wearable sensor terminal with Smartphone device. Android-based mobile client, boasting of its openness, flexible system architecture and strong technical support for application development, enjoys a great popularity. This paper intends to introduce an Android-based Mobile Heath System for medical application, which integrates various technologies including wearable technology, near field communication technology and Smartphone platform Technology. Meanwhile software solutions in flexible support of two important wireless network Protocols – Bluetooth and ANT+ are addressed.
