Book Description

In recent times, Medical Internet of Things (MIoT) has emerged as one of the most helpful technological gifts to mankind. With the incredible development in Data Sciences, Big data technologies, Internet of Things and Embedded Systems, today it is possible to collect huge amount of sensitive and personal data, compile and store it through cloud or edge computing techniques. The other important concerns remain the security and privacy, preservation of sensitive and personal data, efficient transfer, storage and processing of MIoT based data.

Medical Internet of Things: Techniques, Practices and Applications is an attempt to explore new ideas and novel techniques in area of Medical Internet of Things apart from basic concepts. The book is composed of fifteen chapters discussing the basic concepts, issues, challenges, case study and applications in MIoT.

This book intends to offer novel advances and applications of MIOT in a precise and clear manner to the research community to achieve in depth knowledge in the field. This book will help those interested and intended researchers to keep insight into different concepts and their importance in multifaceted applications of real life. This has been done to make this book more flexible and to stimulate further interest in topics.


  • A systematic overview of concepts in Medical Internet of Things (MIoT) has been included.
  • Recent research and some pointers to future advancements in areas of MIoT have been discussed.
  • Examples and case studies have been included.
  • Written in easily understandable style with the help of numerous figures and dataset

This book serves as a reference book for scientific investigators who are interested to work on MIoT, as well as to researchers developing methodology in this field. It may also be used as a textbook for a post graduate level courses in computer science or information technology.
