In the present work, a reliable wireless healthcare monitoring network which is compatible with common platforms and operating systems is designed and implemented. The main advantages of our suggested wireless monitoring network are the ability to monitor any required quantity, the usage of an efficient programming environment to allow all features of monitoring, controlling, and data processing to be implemented, the ability to extend the number of monitored patients, and the ability to transfer measurement data over wired or wireless channels. In addition to all of the above mentioned features, the system is implemented with components which achieve the minimum costs without scarifying accuracy. The use of low cost wireless communication and internet network facilities makes our suggested monitoring system reliable for all capital projects with minimum costs and ensures upgradability to adapt additional wide user requirements.© (2011) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
