Future telemedicine systems will exploit mobile communications technology so that patients who are free to move around at home or at work, or in emergency medical situations, can be monitored in a hospital. At present, the GSM mobile telephone cellular network is limited to 9.6 kbps, but with the introduction of the third generation (3G) network, data rates of 144 kbps will be available, giving scope for the transmission of much more biomedical data as well as voice and video data if required… CONTINUE READING
