The eTerminal is a mobile phone based eHealth terminal for patients to capture both health parameters and continuous biological signals. The combined application of NFC and Bluetooth technology will enable a high degree of usability and ease of use. With it, a high level of acceptance among patients should be achieved.

The Terminal prototype will be evaluated in a clinical study on a selected group of patients. It will be investigated whether comprehensive telemedicine management improves heart failure management. The eTerminal will be used at home is. The eTerminal will be used at home for independent data collection.
