Abstract

The rapid increase of wireless technologies and body area networks has enabled the continuous healthcare monitoring of patients from a remote location using various sensors. This paper describes a remote health monitoring system using WBAN where different sensors are used to collect a patient’s vital signs. Once the data is received, the captured data are evaluated by the Arduino and sent to the patient’s Android Smartphone using a Bluetooth module and a newly developed android application named Health Monitoring App. Data can be accessed by the patient himself, by doctor or patient’s family members. In critical conditions such as when body temperature and pulse rate goes beyond a predefined value or patient fall down, then application from patient’s smart phone triggers a message to deliver to the doctor or relatives with the location of the patient using built-in GPS in patient’s phone. This remote health monitoring system is very feasible and cost-effective for a developing country like Bangladesh.
