Advances in wireless sensor network technologies have realized new opportunities to form Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) for pervasive remote monitoring of the patients' vital signs at hospital and remote homecare environment, thereby improving healthcare system. The wireless physiological body sensor node is capable of sensing and processing the vital(More)
The security and authenticity of biomedical data are of the subjects of legal requirements. This paper proposes the use of digital watermarking to improve the security of biomedical signals transmitted over a wired or wireless network. The proposed scheme embeds a watermark sequence generated for each patient using the integer wavelet transform. Since for(More)
As electroencephalography (EEG) signals contain sensitive personal health information, it is generally a legal requirement to prevent their unauthorized access. For example, the HIPAA in the US requires that access to personal health information is limited to properly authorized individuals. In this paper, a chaos-based encryption method is proposed to(More)
With rapid growth in computer network and information technology, a large number of copyrighted works now exist digitally as a computer files, and electronic publishing is becoming more popular. These improvements in computer technology increase the problems associated with copyright enforcement and thus future developments of networked multimedia systems(More)
A telemedicine system is described for monitoring the vital signs and general health indicators of patients with cardiac and diabetic conditions. Telemetry from wireless sensors and readings from other instruments are combined into a comprehensive patient health dataset. The data can be stored, accessed and displayed using mobile Internet communications(More)
Two separate projects have been carried out to implement m-health programs in India and Iraq, and, for each, this paper describes the work performed by the teams involved, presents results and details a number of lessons learned. In general, it is found that although India and Iraq have very different medical priorities, they pose similar issues when(More)
