In this paper, the
recent advances of sensors applied in healthcare environments are presented.
Based on the function and operation of modern health and wellness measurement
and monitoring and mHealth solutions, a variety of sensors are described with
their features and applications. Further improvements and future trend are
pointed out and discussed.
