Abstract

A wireless Body Sensor Node (BSN) and its operations are presented. The BSN comprises all the necessary components (i.e., antenna, electronics, batteries and bio-sensor) to allow continuous monitoring of physiological data. In vitro characterization validates the simulated performances, while in vivo experiment shows the capability of the system for real life telemedicine applications.
