A paper entitled 'Ubiquitous WSN for Healthcare: Recent Advances and Future Prospects' was published recently by IEEE Internet of Things Journal in volumn 1, issue 4, 2014. Interested readers may refer to this publication at "http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?arnumber=6827212".
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have witnessed rapid advancement in medical applications from real-time telemonitoring and computer-assisted rehabilitation to emergency response systems. In this paper, we present the state-of-the-art research from the ubiquity perspective, and discuss the insights as well as vision of future directions in WSN-based healthcare systems. First, we propose a novel tiered architecture that can be generally applied to WSN-based healthcare systems. Then, we analyze the IEEE 802 series standards in the access layer on their capabilities in setting up WSNs for healthcare. We also explore some of the up-todate work in the application layer, mostly on the smartphone platforms. Furthermore, in order to develop and integrate effective ubiquitous sensing for healthcare (USH), we highlight four important design goals (i.e., proactiveness, transparency, awareness, and trustworthiness) that should be taken into account in future systems.

  摘要:无线传感器网络在医疗保健方面的应用得到了快速发展,比如实时的远程监护、计算机辅助康复治疗、急症响应系统等。但是从泛在传感网的角度,还很少有对医疗保健方面研究现状和未来发展方向的综述型论文,本文正是从这一角度进行了深入探讨。首先,我们提出一个通用的分层体系结构模型,然后,在接入层分析了IEEE 802系列标准是否能较好的支持泛在传感网络医疗保健方面的应用。从应用层角度,我们给出了一系列以智能手机平台为代表的医疗保健应用。为了使得未来的系统开发和整合更加有效、易于集成,我们提出了四个设计目标(可用性、透明性、自适应和可信性),这也可以做为评价泛在传感网医疗保健系统质量的参考依据。
