Internet of Things in Biomedical Engineering

Book description

Internet of Things in Biomedical Engineering presents the most current research in Internet of Things (IoT) applications for clinical patient monitoring and treatment. The book takes a systems-level approach for both human-factors and the technical aspects of networking, databases and privacy. Sections delve into the latest advances and cutting-edge technologies, starting with an overview of the Internet of Things and biomedical engineering, as well as a focus on ‘daily life.’ Contributors from various experts then discuss ‘computer assisted anthropology,’ CLOUDFALL, and image guided surgery, as well as bio-informatics and data mining.

This comprehensive coverage of the industry and technology is a perfect resource for students and researchers interested in the topic.

  • Presents recent advances in IoT for biomedical engineering, covering biometrics, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, computer vision and various network applications
  • Discusses big data and data mining in healthcare and other IoT based biomedical data analysis
  • Includes discussions on a variety of IoT applications and medical information systems
  • Includes case studies and applications, as well as examples on how to automate data analysis with Perl R in IoT
