Introduction: The "Wireless Sensor Network" based rehabilitation is one of the major issue in hospitals. The purpose of this study was to prioritization the criteria of wireless sensor networks in the rehabilitation supervision using the Fuzzy MCDM Approach.
Methods: In this descriptive study, the population consisted of all doctors and nurses in Tehran Day's Hospital, with 210 people. From the statistical population, there were 70 doctors and 40 nursing experts. Satisfaction rate and willingness to participate in the study were individuals with specialization in rehabilitation and wireless sensor networks and at least 5 years in the field. Therefore, 30 people were selected through purposive sampling. Also, a fuzzy multi-criteria decision-making model is used to illustrate the hierarchical structure of existing factors. The data gathering instrument was “Pairwise Comparison Rehabilitation Questionnaire”. Validity and reliability of the Questionnaire was confirmed using content validity ratio and alpha Cronbach. Data analysis was performed using SPSS.19 and MATLAB 6.5 software.
Results: Calculations indicate that comfortable and durable criteria have respectively the highest degree of importance relative to other criteria. Also, the options of reliable communication and body impact in signal propagation were the highest priority in comparison to other challenges of wireless sensor networks in rehabilitation monitoring.
Conclusions: Prioritizing the criteria for wireless sensor networks in rehabilitation monitoring leads to a significant selection of criteria in engaging with decision makers. It is suggested to managers to improve the performance of staff in using sensors through training.
