IoT in Healthcare

Patient’s recovery

This use case aims to investigate if and how 5G sensors can help improve patients’ recovery. Personal and environment sensors can measure heart rate, steps, movement, stress, bood oxygen levels, sleep pattern, ECG, sound pressure, temperature, CO2 levels and much more. By using real-time sensors, personal feedback and data analytics, we can determine if there is a relationship between the length of recovery and his or her environment and behavior at the hospital, nurse home or other facility.
