Pervasive health monitoring based on internet of things: Two case studies
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 2014 4th International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare - "Transforming Healthcare Through Innovations in Mobile and Wireless Technologies", MOBIHEALTH 2014, 2015, 275-278 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
With the continuous evolution of wireless sensor networks and Internet of Things (IoT) various aspects of life will benefit. IoT based pervasive healthcare system has potential to provide error free medical data and alerting system in critical conditions with continuous monitoring. The system will minimize the need of dedicated medical personnel for patient monitoring and help the patients to lead a normal life besides providing them with high quality medical service. In this paper, we provide the implementation of IoT-based architectures for remote health monitoring based on two popular wireless technologies, Wi-Fi and ZigBee. We analyse the two architectures with the aim of identifying their pros and cons and discuss suitability of mentioned wireless communication technologies for different healthcare application domains.
