Remote Telemedicine Monitoring Systems (RTMS) based on wireless sensor network give patients more freedom of movement. However, in these systems, numerous biosensors are located on various body parts. Thus, how to manage these sensors to work cooperatively is a challenging problem. Visualization of wireless sensor network for RTMS is a useful tool to solve this problem. This paper presents a framework for visualizing the wireless sensor networks for remote telemedicine monitoring system called Vi-RTM. Our goal is to manage the sensors in a highly convenient form by employing effective visualization algorithms.
