Mid Sweden University - A Survey of Wireless Sensor Networks for Home Healthcare Monitoring Application

Jun Tang, Tingting Zhang

Abstract

In recent years, wireless sensor network technology has become mature. Working together with biomedical engineering, it has enormous potential benefits to improve the lifestyle of human especially for the elderly. This survey mainly focuses on two prototypes of home healthcare monitoring application: daily activities monitoring application and medical status monitoring application. It will present the requirement analysis which starts from the causes of chronic diseases. The paper also discusses challenges for current home healthcare monitoring application. At the last part of the survey, it will give the conclusion and future aspects.
