Robust health stream processing
MetadataShow full item record
As the cost of personal health sensors decrease along with improvements in battery life and connectivity, it becomes more feasible to allow patients to leave full-time care environments sooner. Such devices could lead to greater independence for the elderly, as well as for others who would normally require full-time care. It would also allow surgery patients to spend less time in the hospital, both pre- and post-operation, as all data could be gathered via remote sensors in the patients home. While sensor technology is rapidly approaching the point where this is a feasible option, we still ...
