abstract

  • In the last decade, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has become popular in so many fields from military to industry applications. RFID tags have been embedded into many various products especially in logistics sector. A tag stores individual information of its attached object and an RFID reader communicates with the tag in radio frequencies to identify the object. This object to be monitored may also be a human. In our work, RFID technology is applied in health care systems. The system supports wireless mobile communication between the RFID tags and readers. Each patient available in the system is inherently mobile and wears a bracelet integrated with a unique tag, and the readers are mobile PDA devices each including a wireless RFID reader card. The proposed application can be used to identify and monitor the patients.
