Telemedicine is a compound word of “Tele” meaning long-distance-transfer and “medicine”. Long-distance contacts are possible comparable to making telephone-calls. Using Telematic it is possible to transfer other information like data and pictures and not only the voice.

The development shows that telemedicine is more and more on the rise. It will be similar to all other innovations that reflect an improvement, support or a relief for ourselves as human beings. Telemedical applications like TeleTherapy, TeleMonitoring and TeleCoaching will continuously expand according to the wide range of use in young and elderly people as well as for the area of Ambient Assisted Living.
