In the world, our society is faced up to aging populations. Thus, the demands of health care services, the increase of medical costs, along with problems caused by the lack of medical professionals have become critical issues in society. Thus, U-Health services have been introduced to resolve this kind of issues by proposing real-time health care services in a ubiquitous environment which could operate at “anytime and anywhere”. Blood pressure monitor is the most important pervasive personal health equipment due to regular supervising blood pressure could significantly help the people preventing complication of critical diseases. Therefore in this paper, we introduce standardization of U-Health for blood pressure measurement. Additionally, we develop a management application on Android-based mobile phone to retrieve personal health information measured from blood pressure device. The results achieved from our experiment show that our system could be utilized as an effective service which could be deployed directly in the ubiquitous environment.
