A Review on Evaluation of Wireless Medical Monitoring Schemes and Analysis over Shared Operating Frequency Bands



Wireless technology greatly created a transformation in healthcare and thereby removed the usage of cables, which were typically employed as an interweave amid hospital patients, thereby enabling the whole thing from remote access to connectivity amid monitoring devices. Numerous portable medical gadgets integrate wireless technology that might result in risks for life-support gadgets and similar applications. For ensuring amenability and preventing interferences, a need to validate the medical device with electromagnetic compatibility standards becomes mandatory. Protective patient privacy is deemed to be an energetic characteristic towards isolated patient monitoring schemes. Considering the rise in the quantity of feasible wireless medicinal products, they engage different wireless standards, and measured data have been transported at dissimilar rates. Thus, the foremost significant movement is towards supplementing the quantity of integration in wireless medical monitoring schemes. Similarly, the applications of implantable and ingestible wireless medical approaches are becoming increased, as they offer access to data collecting and data which was previously dreadful. Hence, there becomes a bigger possibility of improving the exactness of wireless positioning arrangements. In this article, a review on the evaluation of wireless medical monitoring schemes and analysis over shared operating frequency bands has been evaluated in a state-of-art manner; thereby, every structure has the potential to assist doctors for improving the dominance in lives of patients, thus application developments are properly discussed for progressing with these implements. Every device considered in this article is identical with each other in their elementary contrivances. However, they get fine-tuned in service towards different applications. Hence, every device entailed here is positioned to fit within the operating frequencies, either at 2.4 GHz or 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz. A brief review has been made on these upcoming and prevailing strategies, like a wireless blood pressure cuff, wireless oximeter, wireless electrocardiogram monitoring, wireless electroencephalography headset, wireless glucometer, wireless blood pressure monitoring system, wireless alcoholmeter, wireless capsule camera, wireless triangulating position of objective instruments, wireless sensor network-based monitoring scheme, wireless posture monitoring scheme, wireless acceleration sensor, wireless gait analysis arrangement, wireless telemetry strain gauging humerus implant, wireless monitoring using a microelectromechanical system and application-specific integrated circuit, wireless telemetry stress monitoring knee implant, and wireless protein detection device.
