Available wireless sensor networks targeting the domain of healthcare enables the development of new applications and services in the context of E-Health. Such networks play an important role in several scenarios of patient monitoring, particularly those where data collection is vital for diagnosis and/or research purposes. However, despite emerging(More)
Biomedical wireless sensor networks are a key technology to support the development of new applications and services targeting patient monitoring, in particular, regarding data collection for medical diagnosis and continuous health assessment. However, due to the critical nature of medical applications, such networks have to satisfy demanding quality of(More)
Medication resistant neurological and psychiatric disorders, RNPD, are devastating multicausal chronic diseases that cannot be adequately controlled using conventional pharmaco and/or psychotherapies, being epilepsy a well-known RNPD. Wireless biomedical device availability is growing at an impressive rate, and the systems' miniaturization, integration and(More)
Power delivery from an external source to implanted devices through wireless links is hindered by SAR regulations, which limit the amount of power radiated by an external source that reaches an implant. In order to increase the power delivered to the implant, we studied a solution with two transmitters and compared results with the common single transmitter(More)
A retained surgical instrument is a frequent incident in medical surgery rooms all around the world, despite being considered an avoidable mistake. Hence, an automatic detection solution of the retained surgical instrument is desirable. In this paper, the use of millimeter waves at the 60 GHz band for surgical material RFID purposes is evaluated. An(More)
