Abstract--Recent developments in off-the-shelf wireless
embedded computing boards and the increasing need for
efficient health monitoring systems, fueled by the
increasing number of patients, has prompted R&D
professionals to explore better health monitoring systems
that are both mobile and cheap. This work investigates
the feasibility of using the ZigBee embedded technology
in health-related monitoring applications. Selected vital
signs of patients are acquired using sensor nodes and
readings are transmitted wirelessly using devices that
utilize the ZigBee communications protocols. A prototype
system has been developed and tested with encouraging
results.
Keywords: Zigbee, wireless health monitoring.
