Abstract-- Driven by the confluence between the need to collect
data about people's physical, physiological, psychological, cogni-
tive, and behavioral processes in spaces ranging from personal to
urban and the recent availability of the technologies that enable
this data collection, wireless sensor networks for healthcare have
emerged in the recent years. In this review we present some
representative applications in the healthcare domain and describe
the challenges they introduce to wireless sensor networks due
to the required level of trustworthiness and the need to ensure
the privacy and security of medical data. These challenges are
exacerbated by the resource scarcity that is inherent with wireless
sensor network platforms. We outline prototype systems spanning
