Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications is actively involved in the area of health care research with the aim of effectively providing healthcare solutions in rural areas. The project focuses on developing integrated, continuous monitoring, and medical alert technology using unobtrusive, wireless sensor devices in three distinct medical areas – Cardiovascular Disorders, Neurological Disorders, and Sleep Disorders. The wireless healthcare monitoring systems research team focuses on the development of smart wireless body sensors, protocols for communication between sensors, smartphones and cloud, disease detection and analysis in the edge devices, context-aware algorithms, architectures for healthcare IoT devices and big data analytics on the cloud.

An Affordable System for Early Detection of Breast Cancer using Novel Infrared Imaging and Real Time Diagnosis

A low cost non-invasive screening technique for breast cancer is highly demanded, since the number of women having breast cancer is increasing day by day. Infrared (IR) or medical thermography is a noninvasive imaging technique that is capable of detecting the abnormality even ten years before the on-set of the disease.
