Wearable communications and personal health management are the future trends the healthcare procedures are nowadays heading for. To make this happen, new technologies are required to provide trustable measuring and communications mechanisms from the data source to medical health databases.
Indeed, fuelled by the rapid growth in physiological sensors, microfluidics, wireless communication capabilities, and developments in materials chemistry and rapid prototyping/3D printing, new generation wearable and implantable body sensor technologies are emerging, driven by demand across a broad range of civilian and military applications. Of primary interest for this technology is personal health and healthcare applications, especially those requiring continuous monitoring of vital parameters of people suffering from chronic diseases. However, despite the advances in wireless BSNs and monitoring devices, further progress is needed in system integration, sensor miniaturisation, long-term reliability, autonomous operation, context aware operation, and data transmission and signal processing, for BSNs to become a truly pervasive technology that is compliant with non-technical legal, regulatory and ethical constraints.
Following the symposia on the same topic held at previous CIMTEC Conferences, the aim is to bring together researchers and engineers of academia and industry from multiple disciplines to address and debate these complex technical and regulatory challenges.
