Algorithms for Gathering Wireless Wearavle Sensors Information in Remote Healthcare Monitoring

P. 438-442.
Raznometov D.A., Korsakov I.N.
The aim of this paper is to summarize recent developments in the field of wearable  sensors and systems that are relevant to the field of remote healthcare monitoring. The major  articles focused on the application of wearable technology to monitor elder people and  patients with chronic diseases at home. Currently clinical applications of wearable technology  are undergoing assessment. The home remote monitoring system derives from clinical  monitoring system. The Patient Monitors are expensive and need special knowledge to use it.  Patients need external help just to connect and disconnect from Patient's Monitor. As a result,  wearable and easy to use sensors start to use not only in remote home monitoring, but in  hospitals as well, such as floor sensor pad, chair sensor pad, bed sensor pad with heart rate  detection.  Applications, such as heart rate detection, described in this review papers include those that focus on health and wellness, safety, home rehabilitation, assessment of treatment  efficacy, and early detection of disorders. The integration of wearable and ambient sensors is  discussed in the context of receiving vitals sign and activities of elder people and patients  with chronic diseases. The main problem of home sensor like ECG still have to have  knowledge how and where to put electrode as well as not very clearly the purpose of 1 Lead  ECG sensor, it still complicated, but mostly used for Heart Rate detection. We believe that we  may find easy way, like special algorithms, to get Heart Rate. Additional work is required to  advance medical devices including wearable, portable and ambient sensors in a clinic.
