Along with the ageing of population, the low cost and high efficiency physiological information monitor systems for the realization of long-term community guardianship are of great significance. This system can improve the life quality and reduce the medical expense. Our paper is a working model which incorporates sensors to measure parameters like body temperature, heart beat rate, blood pressure; and transfer it to the computer so that the patient’s health condition can be analyzed by doctors in any part of the hospital. Thus, it reduces the doctor’s workload and also gives accurate results. Further this system uses Zigbee technology which enables the viewing of all parameters on the computer. A micro-controller board is used for analyzing the inputs from the patient. Also all the process parameters within an interval selectable by the user can be recorded on the computer. This is very useful for future analysis and review of patient’s health condition. For more versatile medical applications, this paper can be improvised, by incorporating ECG, EMG, EEG systems, dental sensors and annunciation systems, thereby making it useful in hospitals as a very efficient and dedicated patient care system.
