Abstract

Telemedicine & Telecare aided by wireless sensor network (WSN) has recently become a health-caring trend in the future. However, the low data rate of WSN limited the acceptable quality of service. Researches [1-6] adopted ZigBee-based WSN to implement a platform and/or a telecare system. However, the capacity problem due to low data rate characteristic has not been addressed. Our research proposed an arrhythmia-aware telecare system and a new DSP-based WSN platform, enabling good digital signal processing performance in ZigBee-based WSN. Proved by simulations and several real tests, combination of the proposed platform and system can provide a more bandwidth-conserving and reliable telecare system, with lower wireless traffic jam and higher stability.
