Abstract The overall demographic profile of current societies point to a significant growth of the elderly people. Associated with the increase of the average hope of life and consequent increase in chronic diseases, there is the need for protection and daily care. Increasing investments in technology, such as Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions, promote the quality of live extending the time people can live in their desired environment. This paper proposes the design, deployment, and real testbed of an e-health wearable monitoring system based on the integration of several AAL tools and platforms for elderly's bio-signals monitoring. This solution includes electrocardiography (ECG), respiration rate, beats per minute, body temperature, and falls detention and notification. The paper also describes, in detail, the real pilot and analyzes some early results concerning the users quality of experience, and the found results are very promising.
