What is it about?
From the abstract: "This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of recent developments in wireless sensor technology for monitoring behaviour related to human physiological responses. It presents background information on the use of wireless technology and sensors to develop a wireless physiological measurement system. A generic miniature platform and other available technologies for wireless sensors have been studied in terms of hardware and software structural requirements for a low-cost, low-power, non-invasive and unobtrusive system."
Why is it important?
This was one of the earliest reviews of work on wearable wireless devices for measuring physiological data, including issues about antennas, wireless communication protocols, and system aspects (such as battery lifetimes and memory requirements). It also described a typical device structure as a means of discussing the requirements and challenges in developing such systems.
