- ItemDesign of Wearable Health Monitoring Systems: An Overview of Techniques and Technologies&(Springer International Publishing, 2016) Boulemtafes, Amine; Badache, NadjibBecause of the increasing costs of healthcare, wearable health monitoring systems (WHMS) are catching a lot of attention of the research community. Such systems are more and more propelled by advances in technology such as miniaturization, sensing devices and wireless communications. This study aims to review and synthesis the main implementation techniques and technologies used to design WHM Systems on the basis of the typical WBAN three-tiers architecture where the Body Area Network (BAN) represents the key infrastructure of such systems.
- ItemWearable Health Monitoring Systems: An Overview of Design Research Areas(Springer International Publishing, 2016) Boulemtafes, Amine; Badache, NadjibIn order to be effective and helping towards improving quality of living of people, design and development of wearable health monitoring systems needs to satisfy a number of medical and non-medical criteria’s while taking in consideration resource limitations and fulfilling ergonomic constraints. This study with the aim to serve as a quick reference for future works, attempts to cover main research areas including requirements, challenges and tradeoffs related to the design of such systems.
