From a user's point of view, a point-of-care system for home use should be wearable and easy to use in addition to satisfying requirements for medical devices. In this paper, we address mobility, power consumption, data storage, data transmission, and device synchronization for wearable home care devices that comply with the IEEE 1073 (medical information bus) standard. A wearable, standards-based, plug-and-play system for home care that utilizes IEEE 1073 and off-the-shelf components is presented. This work will result in proposed enhancements to IEEE 1073.
