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.

The above listed work is highlighted in IEEE ComSoc Technology News (CTN) November issue with URLhttp://www.comsoc.org/ctn/ubiquitous-wsn-healthcare-recent-advances-and-future-prospects.

The sheer quantity of new papers and articles published by IEEE presents a significant challenge for most ComSoc professionals who simply do not have enough time to read them all. ComSoc Technology News (CTN) is an online publication that periodically provides the summaries of interesting, timely, and newsworthy papers and articles from ComSoc journals, magazines, and conference proceedings and other IEEE publications.
