Survey on Li-Fi Based Health Inspector

Authors(4) :-L. Jamuna, S. Kavitha, G. Deepika, V. Krishna Kumar

Usually, Wi-Fi is used to monitor the patient's health parameters. Wi-Fi uses RF that causes health vulnerabilities. Some people claim they are hypersensitive to radio frequencies and are looking for an alternative. Generally in ICUs nurses are taking care of abnormalities and the health of the patient. but they may not be available for taking care of patient's health 24X7. Light Fidelity is a good solution to this problem.Li-Fi refers to 5G visible light communication systems using light from light-emitting diodes as a medium to deliver high-speed communication in a similar manner as Wi-Fi. It is used to update health parameters quickly and it can be viewed at monitor of the doctor. Simultaneously it also records the data of patient in the CPU. While consulting the patient, this information can be viewed through the internet for reference.
