Abstract
This paper focuses on wireless sensor networks (WSNs) for healthcare and medical applications which aim to look after patients by monitoring vital signs, diagnostics and drug administrations. WSNs in such applications are usually composed of different types of small-size battery powered sensors. In fact, wearable sensors are used to collect information about the signs of a person that needs a medical care. Static sensors, deployed inside the hospital or the home building, are used to collect information about indoor environment. The collected data is then transmitted towards the sink. Since some patients can move, WSN topology is hybrid and composed of mobile an...
