This paper presents a remote patient monitoring system within the scope of Body Area Network standardization. In this regime, wireless sensor networks are used to continuously acquire the patient's Electrocardiogram signs and transmit data to the base station via IEEE.802.15. The personal Server (PS) which is responsible to provide real-time displaying, storing, and analyzing the patient's vital signs is developed in MATLAB. It also transfers ECG streams in real-time to a remote client such as a physician or medical center through internet. The PS has the potential to be integrated with home or hospital computer systems. A prototype of this system has been developed and implemented. The developed system takes advantage of two important features for healthcare monitoring: (i) ECG data acquisition using wearable sensors and (ii) real-time data remote through internet. The fact that our system is interacting with sensor network nodes using MATLAB makes it distinct from other previous works.
