The Autonomy Motivation & Individual Self-Management for COPD patients (AMICA) is aimed at the disease management and medical care of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. AMICA is a Research and Development project funded by the states associated to the AAL Joint Programme and by the EC financial contribution (http://www.aal-europe.eu). AMICA project started April 2009 and lasts for 3 years until April 2012 with a total budget of 2.783.139,48€. Five partners spread across Europe are involved including medical companies and foundations (Vitaphone - Germany, I.S.S- Spain. and the Foundation for Biomedical Research Management- Spain) and Academics (Institute of Communication and Computer Systems from the National Technical University of Athens- Greece, the Engineering School from Cádiz– Spain and the Research Centre for Information Technology from Karlsruhe – Germany). This report summarizes the most relevant aspects of the prototype developed withing the tasks belonging to the Workpackage 1. It contains information about the sensor device to be used at the patient’s homes.
