Paper Abstract

We face the challenge of providing adequate medical attention to a growing and aging population. Even societies with the best healthcare standards are not prepared to provide adequate medical attention to a growing population. Globally, these problems are magnified as medical care is a mélange ranging from obsolete techniques to state-of-the-art care. A solution to providing proper healthcare in every society, and closing the gap between developed and underserved communities, is the implementation of wireless based preventive medicine. The key components to universalize wireless health care are device miniaturization, increased shelf-life of bio-reagents, and low production cost of medical devices.
