Abstract

Nowadays, recent advancements in ICT have sped up the development of new services for smart cities indifferent application domains. One of these is definitely healthcare. In this context, remote patient mon-itoring and rehabilitation activities can take place either in satellite hospital centres or directly in citizens’homes. Specifically, using a combination of Cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data ana-lytics technologies, patients with motor disabilities can be remotely assisted avoiding stressful waitingtimes and overcoming geographical barriers. This paper focuses on the Tele-Rehabilitation as a Service(TRaaS) concept. Such a service generates healthcare big data coming from remote rehabilitation devicesused by patients that need to be processed in the hospital Cloud. Specifically, after a feasibility analysis,by using a Lokomat dataset as sample, we measured and compared the performances of four of the majorNoSQL DBMS(s) demonstrating that the document approach well suits our case study.
