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.
A low-cost, low-power wearable ECG-monitoring monitoring framework that utilizes wireless body sensors, mobile phones and web browsers for monitoring cardiac patients who are in remote areas. The device can be worn either as a necklace or as a belt and continuously monitors and analyzes a patient’s ECG.
Both India and Brazil have a major need to improve their education, health, and support available during disasters, especially in areas with limited connectivity. The goal of this project is to use wireless communication networks for developing enhance healthcare system impart education, build cooperation,promote collaboration, and facilitate innovation among Indian and Brazilian students, professionals, and researchers.
The project aims at design and development of affordable sensor system that could be integrated as an inexpensive patient monitoring systems, capable of monitoring multiple vital physiological parameters like BP(Blood Pressure), SpO2(Blood Oxygen) and Blood Glucose and the system is capable of giving proper warning at abnormal values.
