  • Epidermal Sensor Paradigm: Inner Layer Tissue Monitoring

    The relevant properties of the human body from the very high frequency (VHF) to the X band are studied and dominant propagation modes around the body are discussed in this chapter. Based on these data, approximate human torso models are built for each propagation mode using multiple concentric cylinders emulating the skin, muscle, organ, and the like. After this study, a simpler two-layer model of the human body is proposed for efficient calculations without loss of accuracy and used in the analysis of the epidermal sensor. The radio frequency (RF) properties of human body tissues affect propagation, reflection, attenuation, and other behaviors of electromagnetic fields around the body. Body-centric wireless communications can be divided into three types based on the interaction between the body and the EM field. In each case, different propagation modes are dominant.

  • Antennas and RF Communication

    Nowadays, RF biomedical telemetry systems are facilitated by the continuously increasing advancements in wireless communications, standards, and components. Wireless medical devices and, thus, antennas integrated into them can be divided into three categories, according to their placement on or inside the patient's body: (1) on-body, (2) implantable, and (3) ingestible antennas. Before the widespread use of on-body, implantable, and ingestible antennas, however, there are a number of technical challenges that need to be addressed, mainly in terms of design and channel modeling. Antennas are essential parts of RF biomedical telemetry systems, with their complexity highly depending on the surrounding tissue environment, and the electronics, communications, and medical requirements. This chapter overviews the challenges for on-body, implantable, and ingestible antennas, along with solutions proposed so far in the literature.

  • Implantable Health Care System Paradigm

    This chapter describes the implanted antennas to be applied to medical situations. One is the PIFA loaded onto a cardiac pacemaker for use in the 400MHz Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS) band; another one is the helical dipole antenna for the industrial scientific medical (ISM) band. It evaluates the implanted antenna models were numerically analyzed by the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method and the antenna characteristics. The chapter analyzes the antenna characteristics of an antenna implanted in a multilayer medium model. Moreover, implanted antennas were buried into high- resolution numerical human models and the effectiveness of these antennas and the validity of the multilayered structure model were investigated by numerical analysis. As a result, it is possible to use these implantable antennas for health care wireless communication systems.

  • Intrabody Communication

    A different approach is becoming popular nowadays, although it was originally proposed by Zimmerman in 1996. It is based on signal transmission through the human body, called intrabody communication (IBC), and has led to the first definition of Body Area Networks (BANs). This chapter shows the main features of some of the most relevant IBC prototypes reported in the literature depending on the type of coupling, operating frequencies, data rate, and consumption. The characterization of the IBC channel has commonly been carried out by means of the evaluation of path loss as a function of frequency, which is commonly accepted establish frequency ranges for optimum IBC performance. Dielectric dispersion constitutes the dependence of the permittivity of a dielectric material on frequency. The impact of the IBC channel on digital communications can be analyzed by using simulation techniques relying on appropriate channel models.

  • Ingestible Health Care System Paradigm for Wireless Capsule Endoscopy

    This chapter offers a survey of wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) and endoscopic imaging by evaluating some representative methodologies as well as that WCE technology is also used in colonoscopy. The detection of various organs inside the digestive tract is an important tool for the physician. The chapter presents challenges related to the WCE approaches. In diagnostic endoscopy, based on a distributed perception of local changes, the medical expert interprets the physical surface properties of the tissue, such as the roughness or the smoothness, the regularity, and the shape, to detect abnormalities. According to Fireman and Kopelman (2010): ?>Researchers have proposed the idea that endoscopists will be able to ?>control and steer?> the Capsule Endoscopy (CE), as they are able to do in standard endoscopy.?> The chapter also proposes the design of a WCE robotic capsule for diagnostic/therapeutic endoscopy.

  • Aeronautical Mobility Services

    This chapter assesses emerging mobility applications and services that can be provided with satellite‐based systems. Aeronautical and maritime applications are becoming important both in support of human communication (e.g., Internet access) and for machine‐to‐machine (M2M) communication (e.g., engine telemetry and goods tracking). Business travelers may need to connect to their intranet, access information on the Internet, and communicate via email or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) while in‐flight. The chapter looks at satellite‐based connectivity for people on the move in airplanes, in ships, and in terrestrial vehicles, but with most of the focus on aeronautical applications. In the context of airplanes, these services are being referred to as in‐flight communication (IFC), which some also call in‐flight connectivity. Some airlines are planning to install integrated in‐flight entertainment and communications (IFECs) devices in the planes' seatbacks.

  • Satellite Hardware

    This chapter takes a close look at what a typical satellite comprises, irrespective of its intended application, and discusses the different subsystems making up a typical satellite. It addresses issues like the major function performed by each one of these subsystems along with a brief consideration of their operational aspects. The satellite subsystems discussed are: mechanical structure, propulsion subsystem, thermal control subsystem, power supply subsystem, telemetry, tracking and command (TTC) subsystem, attitude and orbit control subsystem, payload subsystem, and antenna subsystem. Satellites operate in harsh environments and it is necessary that the onboard components are space qualified so that they perform their intended function with high reliability. The chapter also discusses the aspects of space qualification, and system reliability and redundancy designed to provide continued satellite operation.

  • Optical Biotelemetry

    This chapter deals with the outline of the basic technologies necessary in order to use optical biotelemetry in practice. It introduces some of the optical biotelemetry systems. Optical biotelemetry is an integrated technology which consists of basic technologies such as optics, communication, biosignal measurement, and information processing. The chapter outlines the basic technologies necessary for optical biotelemetry. A special consideration to optical biotelemetry is necessary in the part from the modulator to the demodulator. The chapter describes the communication technology concerning this part. For optical biotelemetry, it is necessary to understand the propagation of the optical signal in various conditions. The chapter summarizes the optical propagation in transcutaneous telemetry and ambulatory telemetry. There are various multiplexing techniques for optical telemetry. Every technique has problems to be solved in the practical use for optical telemetry.
