Book Description

Considering the importance of wireless networks in healthcare, this book is dedicated to studying the innovations and advancements of wireless networks for biomedical application and their impact. This book focuses on a wide range of wireless technologies related to healthcare and biomedical applications which include, among others, body sensor networks, mobile networks, internet of things, mobile cloud computing, pervasive computing and wearable computing. First the authors explain how biomedical applications using wireless technologies are built across networks. The authors also detail 5G spectrum splicing for medical applicatons. They then discuss how wearable computing can be used as activity recognition tools for biomedical applications through remote health monitoring and and remote health risk assessment. Finally the authors provide detailed discussions on security and privacy in wirelessly transmitted medical senor data. This book targets research-oriented and professional readers. It would fit as a recommended supplemental reading for graduate students. It also helps researchers enter the field of wireless biomedical applications.
