The issue of measuring the physiological quantities is addressed, with the conventional yet complex task of quantitative accuracy evaluation being discussed. The concept of complexity and its relevance for the physiological parameters defining both the health state and disorders is accounted for. The principles of body area networking and the relevant standards are briefly overviewed, with a focus on security issues. The concept of biofeedback implemented through mHealth sensor technologies is examined. Basic requirements to facilitate market acceptance and response are analyzed. Selected case studies of pervasive health monitoring are presented. Possible current and future mHealth applications are considered. Since some general problems of healthcare are touched upon in the article, it is intended to provoke a controversy.
