The main objective of this master work is to make a research on the sensors technology in medicine and health care systems. At first, the basic definition of sensors and their other general information are elaborated in an introductory chapter. Before going further into the current significant technologies, some historical breakthroughs of sensors in the medical field during the past years are highlighted as an introductory overview in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 starts to focus on the sensors technology for monitoring human health such as glucose level, heart rate and blood pressure. Several types of sensors being used in surgical and catheter applications are discussed in Chapter 3. Meanwhile in Chapter 4, sensors technology for the analysis of human body motion is sufficiently described. Chapter 5 next put some highlights on the use of sensors in home health care. Finally in Chapter 6, few sensors that support human aid tools facilities are then discussed . The report content focuses more on technical information related to any sensors which have been used in medicine and health care system until present. The purpose of this thesis is to clarify the sensors' behaviour when they are being used in some particular applications with regard to medicine and health care system.
