Wireless embedded platforms play a significant role in Wireless Health: For many hidden medical conditions, symptoms may not reveal during traditional clinical visits. Cumulative, free-living monitoring, where individuals are monitored continuously with the use of wireless electronics and sensors, is considered a potential solution for capturing additional physiological data (Bonato 2003). From chronic disease management to physical rehabilitation, these platforms have demonstrated their potential uses (Moy et al. 2003; Bonato 2005).
