Abstract

There were an increasing number of innovative applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in health care domain. It has never been such clearer to appreciate the advantages and benefits of applying the WSNs to improve the quality of health care in a wide variety of areas. Thanks to the sensing and communications technology of today, it has also reached a point where these WSNs applications can be readily implemented and deployed to function although there are some limits and hinderance from the viewpoint of security concerns.

In this paper, we provide a protocol stack applicable to the WSNs for health care systems, and to outline a framework to implement the WSNs in two different health care settings. Following the proposed framework, we have simulated a WSNs based health care application for the settings of hospitals and/or nursing homes for the performance study.
