Abstract

Remote medical monitoring services for elderly people is necessary, especially for societies where the population of elderly people are rapidly increasing and healthcare costs are increasing due to lack of human resources. Wearable health-monitoring systems (WHMSs) can provide real-time medical condition monitoring using multiple biosensors attached to the human body. In this paper, virtual multiple input multiple output (MIMO) is proposed as a suitable technique for biosensor networks as it enables higher throughput capacity and less energy consumption than conventional schemes. The performance analysis of the proposed system shows that the lifetime of the virtual MIMO-based system outperforms existing systems.
