ABSTRACT
Healthcare providers could use ad hoc networks to supplement the sometimes spotty and unreliable coverage of infrastructure-oriented wireless networks for patient monitoring. A proposed incentive-based approach encourages devices to cooperate as routers, significantly improving message delivery reliability.
INDEX TERMS
ad hoc networks, healthcare monitoring, incentive-based routers
