Healthcare Analysis via Wireless Sensor Network

Authors(3) :-Surabhi Juneja, Swapnali Kendre, Uday Patkar

Wireless body area networks (WBANs) are emerging as important networks, applicable in various fields. Development in low-power integrated circuits, ultra low-power RF (radio frequency) technology, wireless communications and micro sensors permitted the realization of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs). It is one of the latest approaches in medical identification, management and also key building block for future intentional networks and Internet. WSNs have been under rapid development and has become essential in such domains as industrial operations (factory, production, supply chains), health care (home monitoring, biomedical, food safety), environmental (agriculture, habitat preservation), infrastructure (energy, traffic and transportation, flood gauges, bridge stress, power grids, water distribution), and military, as well as for research and development. Advances in wireless sensor networking have opened up new opportunities in healthcare systems. Sensor-based technology has invaded medical devices to replace thousands of wires connected to these devices found in hospitals. This technology has the capability of providing reliability in addition to enhanced mobility. In the future, we will see the integration of a vast array of wireless networks into existing specialized medical technology. This paper will investigate the application of current state-of-the-art of wireless sensor networks in health care systems and will address how WSN concepts are integrated in our computer engineering program.
