In the forthcoming wireless world of E-healthcare systems, the medical staff should be able to seamlessly access medical services from a variety of terminals while on the go with the same “look and feel” and with highly diverse capabilities (e.g., mobile phones, smartphones, PDAs, laptops, PCs). In that context, the knowledge of terminal capabilities is essential for service provision so users are only offered customized services and content supported by the device they currently use for network access. The challenge is how the mediating application server detects the effective level of capabilities of the requesting devices, so each client receives the requested content in a form that its terminal device can properly present. This contribution focuses on the issue of dynamic adaptation of medical services and content to the terminal capabilities of the requesting device, so with a generic service design all possible client devices can be served.
