In this paper, the major advantages of a distributed processing methodology developed in the context of biomedical sensor networks (BSN) are compared to the most usual wireless communication topology architectures developed in the literature. These advantages are highlighted in the context of a distributed fall detection system developed by the authors in terms of more facilities for system personalization to the end user and multimodal functionality in order to extend the biomedical application domain of the system. As the main result, a lower power consumption of the devices pertaining to the system is shown.
