Qualcomm's Wireless Health Program For Future Digital Healthcare
Qualcomm's wireless health program is planning to create a Body Area Network, in which sensors put in a patient will transfer real time data about his medical condition to the physician.
Qualcomm's Wireless Health Program aims to cut down on the time taken by doctors to acquire their patients' data, thus freeing them to fully concentrate on treating the patients. The program plans to create a network of sensors inside a human body, dubbed as Body Area Network, that can interpret and transfer data wirelessly to the physician.
Qualcomm's technology has already helped develop wireless pills which send data through an electrical impulse to a sensor in the abdomen.
