As many areas of the medical field are becoming more and more interested in telemedicine and outpatient care, the authors focused on obstetrics and the monitoring of fetal health as an area of medicine that could benefit greatly from Body Sensor Network (BSN) technology. In this paper, they explore some of the hardware sensor interface challenges involved with condensing the fetal monitoring procedure into a portable system, specifically for a system integration with a Smartphone.
