Research title : Real-Time Physiological Monitoring in Next Generation eHealth Network. The CareLight sensor associated embedded system is required to investigate the effects of eHealth in the forthcoming healthcare system. This lack of integration presents challenges for professionals who need to collect time sensitive data via constant monitoring in a non-intrusive manner. These requirements of the research work will be engineered into the existing Carelight platform that is able to collect data from a wide range of in vivo physiological monitoring and consolidate the resulting data into a format appropriate for further analysis. Recent advances in body sensor nodes will be exploited to provide a wearable wireless solution. Special software will be created to allow easy end user configuration against desired optoelectronic sensor fit and performance.
