In this paper, we introduce an ECG measurement, analysis and transmission system which uses a mobile phone as a base station. The system is based on a small-sized mobile ECG recording device which sends measurement data wirelessly to the mobile phone. In the mobile phone the received data is analyzed and if abnormalities are found part of the measurement data is sent to a server for the use of medical personnel. The prototype of the system was made with a portable ECG monitor and Nokia 6681 mobile phone. The results show that modern smart phones are indeed capable for this kind of tasks. Thus, with their good networking and data processing capabilities, they are a potential part of the future wireless health care systems.
