Towards assistive healthcare.pdf - Published Version
The large increase in Australia’s aging population promises to be major economic and social issue for local, state and federal Government bodies. The healthcare budget is expected to increase dramatically and the burden on healthcare services will require not only a massive injection of capital funds but an increase in qualified care givers. The authors believe that assistive healthcare monitoring is one viable and cost-effective solution to alleviate the burden of the healthcare system today and in the future. The authors in this paper describe their third Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) prototype called MoteCare and anticipate the implementation of the next, more advanced prototype. Details of the improvements are covered followed by an objective system evaluation and conclusion.
