Wireless Sensor Network Model

Sensor / December 26, 2014

Recent advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have led to several emerging applications in pervasive medical care. A combination of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) with wearable or implantable sensors and contextual information could potentially advance medical monitoring, diagnosis, treatment and patient care. There are numerous challenges to realization of pervasive medical care. These challenges include interoperability of communication interface, wearable computing, sensor data fusion, security and privacy of sensitive data, reliability of communication protocols, energy efficiency of sensor devices, decision support systems and user-friendly interfaces, etc. Although significant progress has been made in the last few years, more work is needed for the pragmatic realization of this technology. This special issue seeks original contributions addressing recent developments, medical sensor devices, techniques, applications, algorithms, architectures and implementations in pervasive medical care using WSNs. In particular, this special issue solicits original unpublished work concerning (but without being limited to) the following topics:

  • Wearable sensor devices in medical monitoring
  • Algorithms, communication protocols and architectures for medical monitoring applications
  • Integration of smart application for pervasive medical care
  • Security, integrity and privacy of medical data
  • Management of Wireless Body Area Sensor Networks
  • Interoperability of WSN/WBAN technologies with clinical environments
  • Trade-offs for energy efficiency and quality of service (QoS) in WBAN/WSNs in pervasive medical care
  • Decision support systems for analysis of data in pervasive medical care
  • Novel architectures and systems for pervasive health care services
