Wireless sensor network based E-health system: Implementation and experimental results

  title={Wireless sensor network based E-health system: Implementation and experimental results},
  author={Hairong Yan and Hongwei Huo and Youzhi Xu and Mikael Gidlund},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics},
With the increasing number senior citizens, E-health is targeted for home use with the special requirements of being usable in everyday life and low cost. A wireless sensor network application is proposed here for 24 hour constant monitoring without disturbing daily activities of elderly people and their caretakers. In the system proposed, both fixed and body (mobile) sensors are used. Since not every elder likes to have a sensor board attached to him/her, and in many cases, he/she may not… CONTINUE READING
