A Network Structure for Medical Assistance in Rural and Urban Areas Using IoT Technology

  title={A Network Structure for Medical Assistance in Rural and Urban Areas Using IoT Technology},
  author={E. Serafim and S. Motoyama},
A network structure using IoT technology for application in healthcare is proposed in this paper. The main idea is to combine the body sensor network (WBAN) that monitors the vital signs of a patient with RFIDs. RFID readers placed strategically close to the patients, collect data from the WBAN, and through a clustered configuration of these readers reach the medical centers where they are processed and presented to physicians for monitoring purposes. In this paper, the configuration of… Expand
