Objectives: This article describes the development of two prototypes supported in the e-Health Sensor Shield V2.0 Arduino low as processing architecture, in order to manage and monitor physiological parameters related to the prevention of Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) is presented. Methodology: The introduction of Information Technology and Communications (ICT) in the health sector have fostered the creation of new approaches that encompass related to prevention, care, management and health education, offering alternatives to address traditional problems activities. Findings: The ultimate purpose of the system is to encourage user self-care culture and healthy lifestyles as obesity, hypertension and diabetes are now considered as a focus of health programs. Application/Improvements: Prototypes allow the capture, analysis, processing and remote transmission via internet biometric data (glucose and blood pressure) that can be accessed from any device.
Keywords: Arduino, Diabetes, e-Health, Hypertension, Telemedicine, NCCD
