Non-invasive Wireless Bio Sensing
- 606 Downloads
Wireless sensing technologies are increasingly being employed on Health systems, aiming to improve the data communication flow between patients and clinical experts. This is especially important for patients located at remote locations or facing mobility constraints. In order to fully exploit the advantages of wireless communications, it is necessary biosensors that collect data about user’s health, possibly integrated on a personal wireless sensor network. With this goal in mind, a wireless solution is described that presents an innovative wireless heart rate device, as well as user interface technologies for enabling real-time data visualization on mobile devices by patients and medical experts.
