Abstract|The application scenarios of wireless sensornetworks for health care systems are very complex, whichrequire a new communication schemes that can dynami-cally ful¯ll these requirements and achieve e±cient datatransmission. It brings a big challenge to routing, accesscontrol, data transmission, storage and processing. Thispaper presents a novel routing scheme named Virtual hy-percube routing (VHR), in which the routing selection andmaintenance rules are de¯ned based on a logical hypercubestructure. It can highlight good performance in data trans-fer rate and query e±ciency. Based on this structure, therouting for health care can be implemented e±ciently. Weevaluate the performance of VHR using simulation underhome and public area care scenarios. The results show thatthis scheme performs high data transfer rate, low latencyand low overhead for communication under both static anddynamic scenarios.
