Abstract

Contemporary technologies as implemented in the field of health care have provided the everyday clinical practice with a plethora of tools to be used in various settings. However, from all established and emerging applications, priority will be given to those amongst them that target problems pertinent to efficiency in health care delivery that is also associated with increased costs tantalizing contemporary National Health Systems (NHS) not only in Europe but globally. In this field, WSN4QoL is a Marie Curie project which involves academic and industrial partners from three EU countries, which aims to propose new Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs)-based technologies to meet the specific requirements of pervasive healthcare applications. This paper focuses on presenting a protocol stack architecture designed to support the solutions proposed in that project to enhance energy efficiency.
