Smart mobile systems, smart textiles, smart implants and sensor controlled medical devices are among the recent developments which have become important enablers for telemedicine and next-generation health services. Social media and gamification have added yet another dimension to Personalized Health (pHealth).

This book presents the proceedings of pHealth 2015, the 12th International Conference on Wearable Micro and Nano Technologies for Personalized Health, held in Västerås, Sweden, in June 2015. The conference addressed mobile technologies, knowledge-driven applications and computer-assisted decision support, as well as apps designed to support the elderly and those with chronic conditions in their daily lives. The 23 conference papers, three keynotes and two specially invited contributions included here address the fundamental scientific and methodological challenges of adaptive, autonomous and intelligent pHealth approaches.

Participants at this truly interdisciplinary conference included representatives from all relevant stakeholder communities, and the topics covered will be of interest to all those whose work involves improving the quality of medical services, optimizing industrial competitiveness and managing healthcare costs.
