Power optimization in wearable biomedical systems: A signal processing perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Wearable monitoring systems have caught considerable attention recently due to their potential in many domains including smart health and well-being. These new biomedical monitoring systems aim to provide continuous patient monitoring and proactive care options. Realization of this vision requires research that addresses a number of challenges, in particular, regarding limited resources that the wearable sensor networks offer. This paper presents an overview of different strategies for prolonging system lifetimes through power optimization in such systems. Particular emphasis is given to enhancing processing and communication architectures with respect to the signal processing requirements of the system.
