The combination of bio-telemetry, sensor networks, communication networks, and computing has opened up new areas in the medical field and provided the means for improved health care delivery. Therefore, over the past decade, reliance on information technology has become very prominent as doing so makes it a lot easier for health practitioners to offer more efficient health services. This book is a compendium of emerging techniques using artificial intelligence for diagnosis, bio-informatics data analysis, and biomedical systems. It details innovative applications of neural networks, computer vision, panoramic image processing, electroencephalography, electromyography, and specialized information delivery based on smart sensors and communication to support the deaf, control of prosthetic limb, fall detection, cancer detection, and fatigue detection. These tools and methods are presented for application in secure transportation, home-based health care, and medical establishments. The state-of-the art coverage also provides practical foundations for further research in biomedical informatics and engineering.

Technical topics discussed in the book include:
• Active detection of driver drowsiness;
• Myoelectric Control of Limb Prostheses;
• Electromyography;
• Electroencephalography;
• Bio-Signal Telemetry Sensor Networks;
• Computer Vision in health care delivery;
• Applications of wireless communication devices in health care delivery
