This report reviews, updates and extends the Practel M2M/IoT project that was launched a couple years ago. In particular, it concentrates on the fast-growing healthcare and related segments of M2M/IoT.
Ambient Intelligence is a vision where environment becomes smart, friendly, context-aware and responsive to any type of human needs. In such a world, computing and networking technology coexist with people in a ubiquitous, friendly and pervasive way. Numerous miniature and interconnected smart devices create a new intelligence and interact with each other seamlessly. For healthcare, this translates into proliferation of remote monitoring and telemedicine supported by M2M/IoT networking.
The report addresses recent advances in wireless communications technologies for medical/fitness applications. Particular, it analyzes the following related developments:
-Status of M2M standardization, market and development in general and specifically for medical/wellness applications
-Development and standardization of the Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) and Medical Body Area Network (WMBAN), including their markets specifics
Bluetooth and its Medical Profile
ZigBee and its Medical Profile
Wi-Fi low-power consumption technology
Z-Wave, Ant and other technologies
Self-powered wireless sensors
-Continua Health Care Alliance activities in the selection of WICT for healthcare and their integration
-Survey of related industries.
The report emphasizes the necessity of further proliferation standardized wireless communications in medicine and wellness to reduce the cost and enhance quality of services.
The report is written for service providers, IT departments of hospitals and other medical organizations, retail operators, vendors, network operators and managers, investors and end users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of new trends in the wireless communications medical/wellness applications.
