Abstract

Application of Wireless Sensor Networks in Health Care SystemAbstractRecent, advances in wireless networks and electronics have led to the emergence of Wireless Sensornetworks (WSNs). These networks consist of small battery–powered motors with limited computationand radio communication capabilities. Each sensor in a sensor network consists of three subsystems:the sensor subsystem which senses the environment, the processing subsystem which performs localcomputations on the sensed data, and the communication subsystem which is responsible for messageexchanges with neighboring sensors. WSNs comprise tiny wireless computers that sense, process, andcommunicate environmental stimuli, including temperature, light, and vibration.The sensor networks can be used for various application areas, including within healthcare, the military,or within the home. Advances in wireless sensor networking have opened up new opportunities inhealthcare systems. Sensor-based technology has invaded medical devices to replace thousands ofwires connected to these devices found in hospitals. This technology has the capability of providingreliability in addition to enhanced mobility. In the future, we will see the integration of a vast array ofwireless networks into existing specialized medical technology.This paper will investigate the application of current state-of-the-art of sensor networks in health caresystems.
