Abstract

Wireless technologies based on narrow bands, especially 2.4 GHz ISM, have been used in medical monitoring widely. This chapter discusses the use of ultra-wide band technology (UWB) for medical monitoring systems. UWB presents some unique benefits when compared with the narrow-band systems: (i) low-power transmitter design, (ii) low radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) effects in medical environment, (iii) small-size antenna, and (IV) high data rate. Especially the UWB has efficiently been used for simultaneous monitoring of many continuous physiological signals such as ECC (electrocardiogram) /EEG (electroencephalogram) and neural signals for brain-computer interfaces because of its high data rate capability.
