Implementation of Human Health Monitoring using Zigbee

Prof. Trupti. H. Nagrare, Ms. Chetana. P. Dodke


This paper presents a heterogeneous biomedical implant prototype that has the capability to monitor biomedical signals from multiple biosensors by means of different communication standards. This is why there are great expectations for wireless sensor network technologies which readily allow the sensing of multipoint connections and various types of sensors. It will be necessary to acquire large amount of information to enable smooth control, monitoring and information distribution in ubiquitous implanted biosensors. To validate our prototype, we propose solutions that realize the ideal system using three different types of sensors for autonomous healthcare. In addition, we develop a ZigBee-ready compliant wireless system that offer low power consumption, low cost and advanced network configuration possibilities. Its enhanced user graphical interface gives a possibility to visualize and monitor the progress of multi-sensors' curves concurrency in real-time.
