Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) consists of distributed sensor devices. Healthcare application domain is one of the emerging domains in the current world. Nowadays WSN is more popular in healthcare applications and it produces enormous amount of data in a periodic interval. The data should be effectively stored and later it should be processed and analyzed by the doctors to understand the health conditions of the patients. But the main drawback of WSN is it could not able to store large amount of data. Hence there is a need for the scalable environments like Grid to effectively store the data and use later for processing and analyzing the data.
