Intra-body communication for biomedical sensor networks

  title={Intra-body communication for biomedical sensor networks},
  author={Marc Simon Wegm{\"u}ller},
Intra-body communication is a novel data transmission method that uses the human body as an electrical channel. The idea is driven by the vision of a cable-free biomedical monitoring system. On-body and implanted sensors monitor the vital functions and transfer data through the human body to a central monitoring unit. Especially for risk patients and long-term applications, such a technology offers more freedom, comfort, and opportunities in clinical monitoring. In this thesis, the human body… CONTINUE READING
