  • Bio-fluid sample tester system with LoRa radio
    A Community-based IoT Personalized Wireless Healthcare Solution Trial

    Part of the Special Issue Advanced Internet of Things in a Personalized Healthcare System: Validation, Analysis and Utilization
    This paper presents an advanced Internet of Things point-of-care bio-fluid analyzer; a LoRa/Bluetooth-enabled electronic reader for biomedical strip-based diagnostics system for personalized monitoring. We undertake test simulations (technology trial without patient subjects) to demonstrate potential of long-range analysis, using a disposable test `key’ and companion Android app to form a diagnostic platform suitable for remote point-of-care screening for UTI.
