IoT for Healthcare

Part of the Analog Circuits and Signal Processing book series (ACSP)


The Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled remote sensing and communication with various devices. In the area of healthcare, IoT has far benefits in monitoring and alerting patients. IoT healthcare is applicable in many medical instruments such as ECG monitors, glucose level sensing, and oxygen concentration detection. Advanced technological platform has facilitated its implementation though it has its own challenges.
