ABSTRACT
This paper presents a ZigBee In-Patient Monitoring system embedded with a new ZigBee mobility management solution. The system enables ZigBee device mobility in a fixed ZigBee network. The usage, the architecture and the mobility framework are discussed in details in the paper. The evaluation shows that the new algorithm offers a good efficiency, resulting in a low management cost. In addition, the system can save lives by providing a panic button and can be used as a location tracking service. A case study focused on the Princes of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong is presented and findings are given. This investigation reveals that the developed mobile solutions offer promising value-added services for many potential ZigBee applications.

f4-sensors-14-02397: Schematic of the main clinical block and trauma center.

Mentions: Prior to going into the detailed steps, a brief introduction of the studied site is given. The Prince of Wales Hospital was built in the 1970s. To alleviate the pressure of increasing population, the Main Clinical Block and Trauma Center was built in 2006 and started to serve citizens in 2010. The details of the Center and typical ward settings are tabulated in Tables 2 and 3, respectively, while the schematic of the center is shown in Figure 4.
