New sensing technologies and the decreasing cost of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) make possible the development of electronic Health (eHealth) monitoring systems. The challenges of such systems include the representation of data extracted from various sensor devices by knowledge workers through semantic enrichment and integration. Also, the data must be stored in a format suitable for querying and further analysis. This paper describes the demonstration of the HealthSense system which captures and queries personal health data extracted from wearable sensors.
