UCLA Wireless Health Community

The current proliferation of broadband wireless services, along with more powerful and convenient handheld devices, will enable a transformational change in health management and healthcare with the introduction of real-time monitoring and guidance for a wide array of patient needs. Low-cost sensors and wireless systems can now create a constantly vigilant and pervasive monitoring capability at home, at work, and in conventional point-of-care environments. A large research community and a fast-growing industry is beginning to connect medical care with technology developers, vendors of wireless and sensing hardware systems, network service providers, and enterprise data management communities. Wearable devices focusing on personal health, rehabilitation, and early disease detection are now being developed and some early products have appeared. New Wireless Health services will support large communities. For example, ubiquitous personal wireless devices also enable participation and development of collective results from large populations. Concepts and new programs under development now are focused on "healthy cities" where many decisions and design objectives may appear that guide development of urban environments to promote health and wellness.

The UCLA Wireless Health community includes an interdisciplinary group of experts and innovators from many UCLA Schools including Engineering, Law, Management, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and Theater, Film, and Television.

This web site resource is created by the UCLA Wireless Health community and will describe advances, new technologies and data sources available, and community events. We look forward to learning about your interests, needs, and opportunities for collaborations.
