Abstract

The Healthcare and the Internet of Things (IoT) are being integrated to improve the people life quality in many aspects, as for example, through the increasing of the patients wellness and also optimizing Hospitals activities. One of the main actors in this integration is the communication link that connects the people to the systems, which is made in most of the cases through wireless devices. There are many available wireless technologies to be applied in a great diversity of healthcare scenarios, in which would stands out specific technologies advantages for each one. Therefore, among the great number of information about it, in this work it is detailed the physical layer characteristics of 9 most used technologies in short-range wireless applications for healthcare. Also, it is made a technology selection for one specific application scenario of newborn babies monitoring.
