Healthcare is one of the most promising applications of Internet of
Things. This paper describes a prototype for the IoT healthcare systems. We propose
the Movement-Aided Energy-Balance (MAEB) routing protocol. The movement and
energy information of the neighbor Coordinators are collected and
stored in the neighbor discovery procedure. The MAEB forwarding is used to
select the most suitable neighbor to forward the data. The simulation results
show that the proposed protocol has better performance than the other three
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.
