Abstract: Pervasive Health seeks to harness developments in pervasive computing technologies and harness them in the health domain. This domain may be interpreted in its widest possible sense, including the medical aspect both physical and mental, but also that of care management, education, community and occupational health. Such is the potential of pervasive computing technologies that the domain of pervasive health itself may ultimately fracture into a number of specialised domains, as the potential of the technology is being increasingly realised in practice. Indeed, this is already occurring with increased research activity being directed towards Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) in response to ongoing societal aging patterns
