Mary Jo Gehrking's curator insight, September 18, 2013 1:27 PM

Lightweight and wireless, wearable and ambient sensors can be an important part of an overall system to remotely manage chronic health conditions via cloud-based storage and applications. While this enables aging and chronically ill adults to to remain in their home environment, there also needs to be ongoing training and tech support for the users, which is often where the funationality of this concept fails.

Sensors - the eyes and ears of the WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network) for healthcare applications, and there are so many others for many other applications
