Title: METHOD FOR WIRELESS DATA TRANSMISSION RANGE EXTENSION
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to apparatuses and a method for wireless health monitoring comprising dynamically adjusting sound data compression level and/or transmission bandwidth of transmission between a mobile transmitter and a receiver. In some embodiments, a method for wireless health monitoring may include calculating (202) a distance between a mobile transmitter (104) and a receiver (110). A data compression (108) level for compressing a signal, e.g., a sound signal, from the transmitter may be determined out of a plurality of data compression levels based on the distance between the transmitter and the receiver. A transmission bandwidth may then be determined (208) based at least in part on the determined data compression level. The compressed signal may be transmitted (210) using the determined transmission bandwidth.
