Resumo: A Body Sensor Network can sense health parameters directly on the patient’s body, allowing 24/7 monitoring in an unobtrusive way. Several tiny sensors collect and route data to a special sink node. A new intra-vaginal biosensor was developed to study the relation between temperature variations and women health conditions, such as ovulation period, among others. We present a biosensor prototype and some initial results on real scenarios with a woman. One of the main issues in a body sensor network is the transformation of the sensor raw data into meaningful medical data for medical staff. Several approaches exist, from mobile device-based approaches to more powerful hardware such as a personal computer. This paper presents our current work in body sensor networks, namely a prototype for intra-vaginal temperature monitoring with initial results, and a mobile tool for data presentation of a three-tier body sensor network. The gathered results demonstrate the feasibility of the approach, contributing to the widespread application of body sensor networks.
