  • Recently, concerns regarding ubiquitous health have been on the increase according to development of ubiquitous technology and growth of health industry. This study suggested a necessity for market segmentation for the creation of new markets of ubiquitous health business under this background. This paper also analyzed possibile health service industry with characteristics of customers by making an analysis of market segmentation. It was grouped into 4 parts by factor analysis and cluster analysis with raw data collected, the results showed that they would be main potential ubiquitous health service industry. However, some are not significant in statistics, which means that since ubiquitous health industry has not yet been experienced, it probably shows uncertainty about its favour. Finally, the study suggested that a future study should build up more detailed market segmentation data with continuous supplementation.

  • The introduction of a ubiquitous environment has realized commercial ubiquitous services in various industrial fields and government area. The central and/or local governments are demanding an appropriate investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service. Thus, this study develops and suggests an evaluation model for ubiquitous service by reflecting its characteristic of promoting public good, as well as its broad ripple effect on people. The investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service suggested by this study is based on Cost Benefit Analysis Method. Especially, the 'Benefit' is analyzed in two aspects; 'Economic Benefit', which shows the benefit that ubiquitous service providers to the overall local economy, and; 'Financial Benefit', which shows the profit of individual investors participating in the introduction of ubiquitous service. The investment evaluation model for ubiquitous service suggested by this study can be used by the central and/or local government during their evaluation for investment before introducing a ubiquitous service. Also, when introducing a ubiquitous service in public field, the model can be used to support the decision making of private businesses for investment. Finally, it can be used to promote and inform the expected benefits of introducing a ubiquitous service to local residents.

  • Objective: The current study was to test if the developed sphygmomanometer was working well and blood pressure information could be collected and monitored systematically through the internet. We tested if the sphygmomanometer and services for blood pressure controlled high blood pressure significantly and the ubiquitous monitoring could be used further. Methods: Kyungwon University, KT Co., Gil Medical Center, LIG Nex1 Co., and Sujeong Health Center conducted an ubiquitous high blood control project in Sujeong-gu, Sungnam, Korea from Mar. 5 to May 16. We developed and applied sphygmomanometer. We distributed the devices to 27 high blood pressure patients. The blood pressures of the residents were monitored through the internet when they measured blood pressures in their homes. A nurse monitored and consulted their blood pressures in the monitoring center in Kyungwon University during the demonstration period. The consultant called them and consulted on their blood pressures in few seconds they used the sphygmomanometers. For the significance of change in blood pressure, we tested statistically with Generalized Additive Model(GAM) and Multi-level Analysis. Results: Both GAM and Multi-level Analysis showed that the blood pressures of persons with ubiquitous blood pressure management decreased significantly as time passed. Conclusions: The internet monitoring and services are considered to be promising because most of the participants were satisfied especially because somebody was caring their health. The decrease of blood pressures was significant by GAM and Multi-level Analysis. Thus, we can apply ubiquitous blood pressure management to health promotion projects.

  • The purpose of this study was to propose ubiquitous housing environment based on older residents' needs for ubiquitous(UT) home services. For this purpose, at the previous study which was the first stage of this study, UT home services by each elderly household based on spouse, income level, and health status were identified and this study finally proposed UT home services by each elderly household type according to residents' level of needs for UT home services. One to one interview with a structured survey questionnaire and illustration was implemented and 204 older residents who were composed of one of six elderly household types were responded. Among 6 types of elderly households, type 2 and 6 were the groups which had higher needs for various kinds of UT home services. Economic status and their health status were the key factors to determine their needs for UT home services. Type 4 and 7 were the groups to express their lower needs for UT home services due to their lower income level and good health condition. Ultimately, two floor plans for type 4 and 5 elderly households were developed to show applicable UT home services in each room of the house.

  • The purposes of this study were to identify the needs for ubiquitous home services in residential environment of elderly single or elderly couple households living without children and also to analyze the differences of the needs according to their demographic and housing characteristics. For this study, a literature review and field works on ubiquitous home services for older people were performed. Also, 1 to 1 interview by using the questionnaire which was developed by the researchers in this study was conducted and 270 elderly residents in Seoul and Gyeonggi-Do were responded. Seventy-one ubiquitous service items which were adopted to home electronic appliances and furniture for older people were developed for 1 to 1 interview questionnaire. The major findings of the study were as follows: the elderly residents expressed highest need for ubiquitous home service items related to safety and health issues. Among ubiquitous service items applied to gas stove, vacuum cleaner, TV, telephone, sofa and toilet, the items related to safety and health aspects were most needed. And residents' income level and health status were the two major variables to show group differences in the need of ubiquitous home services. In other words, the elderly residents who were high income and frail tended to have the highest demand for ubiquitous home services adopted to home electronic appliances and furniture.
