In this paper we evaluate the state of the art in systems with the ability to monitor health and wellness. We report on three categories of system: home telehealth monitoring, accelerometer based systems for classifying movement and state, and systems designed to provide feedback for athletes and sports enthusiasts. As these latter two approaches become pervasive, they can find application as systems that promote wellness in the general population. This can be particularly appropriate to the ageing population, if the systems can be tuned to their requirements, with particular reference to usability.
