Wireless telemonitoring of physiological signals provides an opportunity for compressed sensing (CS). Imagine a scenario where the subject wears some sensor nodes that acquire his/her biomedical signals, and these signals are transmitted instantaneously to a remote facility, where the signals are monitored and analyzed. However, current systems for acquiring some common signals, such as electroencephalogram (EEG)/electrocardiogram (ECG)/pulse pleithismogram (PPG)/magnetoencephalogram (MEG), are wired, cumbersome, and need trained personnel to use them. One cannot expect the elderly population to undergo such training. For them, the acquisition devices must be simple, portable, and wireless.
