Dublin, Nov. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Role of Wireless ICT in Healthcare: M2M, WBAN and Underlying Technologies: Standardization, Trends and Markets (2020)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report reviews, updates and extends the publisher's M2M/IoT project that has been launched a couple of years ago. In particular, it concentrates on the fast-growing healthcare and related to healthcare segments of M2M/IoT communications.

Ambient Intelligence is a vision where the environment becomes smart, friendly, context-aware and responsive to any type of human needs. In such a world, computing and networking technology coexist with people in a ubiquitous, friendly and pervasive way. Numerous miniature and interconnected smart devices create new intelligence and interact with each other seamlessly. For healthcare, this translates into the proliferation of remote monitoring and telemedicine supported by M2M/IoT networking.

The report addresses recent advances in wireless communications technologies for medical/fitness applications.

In particular, it analyzes the following related developments:

  • Status of M2M standardization, market and development in general and specifically for medical/wellness applications

  • Development and standardization of the Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) and Medical Body Area Network (WMBAN), including their markets specifics.

Underlying technologies:

  • Bluetooth and its Medical Profile

  • ZigBee and its Medical Profile

  • Wi-Fi low-power consumption technology

  • Z-Wave

  • Self-powered wireless sensors

  • Continua Health Care Alliance activities in the selection of WICT for healthcare

  • Survey of related industries

  • Estimate of related market segments.

The report emphasizes the necessity of further proliferation standardized wireless communications in medicine and wellness to reduce the cost and enhance the quality of services.

It also includes a survey of patents related to the discussed subjects.

The report is written for service providers, IT departments of hospitals and other medical organizations, retail operators, vendors, network operators and managers, investors and end-users seeking to gain a deeper understanding of new trends in wireless communications medical/wellness applications.

For systems integrators, the report provides an analysis and assessment of competing products currently available as well as an estimation of the overall opportunities in the coming years.
