Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are becoming increasingly important for telemedicine applications, monitoring patients both in the clinical setting and at home. They reduce user discomfort, enhance mobility and reduce costs. WSN are also fundamental in Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) since these smart systems, which are tailored to users needs, collect information about users and their ambient in order to provide personalized feedback. Despite the growing use of wireless communications in the health domain and in AAL systems there is a lack of research literature reviewing trials of these technologies. This paper provides a systematic review of the use of WSN in the health domain, presenting current WSN implementations. It covers 126 papers, of which 26 are studies, classified according to inclusion criteria. There is presented a discussion about the recent research conducted in the field.
