Abstract

Patients recovering from abdominal surgery are at risk of complications due to reduced mobility as a result of post-operative pain. The ability to pervasively monitor the recovery of this group of patients and identify those at risk of developing complications is therefore clinically desirable, which may result in an early intervention to prevent adverse outcomes. This paper describes the development and evaluation of a pervasive network of body sensors developed for monitoring the recovery of post-operative patients both in the hospital and homecare settings. © 2006 IEEE.
