Wireless Body Sensor Network for Remote Monitoring

The increasing age of the population and the rising costs of healthcare are motivating the use of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) as a means for networking low cost mobile medical monitoring devices. The use of biosensors in a WBAN remote monitoring system allows health care professionals to remotely monitor their patient’s physical & physiological parameters. This method of monitoring will allow patients that are healthy enough to return home and free up hospitals and healthcare staff to handle more urgent matters. Typical patients that will benefit from a remote health monitoring system are: elderly patients, postoperative patients, and patients with disabilities. Remote monitoring systems can be used to track a patient’s vitals, provide feedback directly to a patient or healthcare professional, and trigger alarms in the event of an emergency.
