Abstract—A sensor grid middleware for health care monitoring is proposed in this paper. The proposed middleware hides the heterogeneity between the sensors and the grid. Sensors are attached to the patient’s body. The vital sign values collected by the sensors are transmitted to the grid through a mobile device. In the grid, the vital sign values are sent to an appropriate node which contains Software as Service (SaaS).The SaaS receives the vital sign values and analyze whether they exceed the normal value. In this case, the physician looking after the patient is sent an alert message. The physician recommends proper medication based on the patients report he receives.
Index Terms—Sensor grid, telemedicine, middleware, distributed pipe communication, software as service (SaaS)
