ADVANCED NANO-SENSORS AND IOT-BASED DEVICES FOR U-HEALTH CARE APPLICATIONS
Development of health care devices and instruments is progressing at a rapid speed, these
days, for different age group people living in different environments. However, technology is
also changing and hence more appropriate sensors and systems are required to be made for
quick and reliable biomedical applications.
Ultrasonic and other sensors have a big role in health care .applications, starting from basic biological tissue studies and diagnosis of diseases/abnormalities to surgical and therapeutic treatment. With the advances in technology, newer and medical sensor/transducer systems are being developed for various scientific, engineering and medical applications Advanced nano-sensor technologies are described here for new biomedical uses. Main emphasis is placed on the design and development of nano-sensors, biochips, IOT and cloud based systems, for better healthcare. The technology of ‘sensors -on- a- chip’. is also discussed. Case studies of cancer namo-technology, deep seated brain tumour therapy and biotelemetry of patients living in remote areas are given for better ubiquitous health care. In U-health care, wireless sensor networking (WSN) technology is applied in different environments. The new sensor technology would thus be very effective for quick health care at low cost..
