Abstract

Home medical monitoring systems allow care providers to reduce their patient load, but no available systems offer portable operation. This effectively tethers patients to a specific location. In conjunction with the University of Limerick, our team desiged and implemented a proof-of-concept portable medical monitor able to transfer medical data wirelessly. Our completed project supports USB and 802.11b, includes a display and basic user interface, and runs Linux, making it a highly flexible platform for future progression toward marketability.
