Wireless sensor networks for health monitoring Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We propose a platform for health monitoring using wireless sensor networks. Our platform is a new architecture called CustoMed that will reduce the customization and reconfiguration time for medical systems that use reconfigurable embedded systems. This architecture is a network enabled system that supports various wearable sensors and contains on-board general computing capabilities for executing individually tailored event detection, alerts, and network communication with various medical informatics services. The customization of such system with a large number of "med nodes" is extremely fast even by non-engineering staff. In this paper, we present the architecture of such device along with experimental analysis that evaluates the performance of such system. 2005 IEEE.
