A mobile monitoring system utilizing Bluetooth and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) with low-cost hardware equipment has been developed and implemented to enable transmission of an Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal and body temperature of a patient. Communication between a smart mobile phone and the ECG and temperature acquisition apparatus is implemented using the popular Personal Area Network protocol Bluetooth. The mobile phone, in-turn, plots the received ECG signal and displays the temperature using a special application software running on the mobile phone itself, where the plot can be captured and saved as a bitmap image for transmission as an MMS message. The experimental setup can be operated for monitoring from anywhere in the globe covered by a cellular network that offers multimedia data services.
