Regular physical exercises are widely considered to be a key factor for living a healthy life. In this paper we present Mobile@Old, an integrated platform for assisting elderly people to maintain a healthy lifestyle in their homes. Our aim is to highlight the main concepts, technologies, and findings this system rests on. To this end we integrate Mobile@Old in the general conceptual framework of serious games. We provide details about the designing and implementation of Vital Signs Monitoring (VSM) and Physical Activity Trainer (PAT) components of Mobile@Old. Relevant exercises and utilization scenarios are also presented in order to emphases the practical applicability of our approach. We evaluate the usability of platform using the System Usability Scale (SUS). Experimental data regarding the accuracy of whole body movements are also presented
