Smart phone based patient monitoring system

In this busy and competitive world, though we have lots of affection on our parents, grandparents or patients we cannot always stay with us when they are suffering from illness or diseases. But the advancements in current technologies are giving good solutions for such problems. With these solutions we can monitor patients' health conditions through mobile from anywhere in the world.
Now a day’s so many useful technologies are coming out to make our lifestyle more comfort, luxurious and secure. Especially in mobile field so many applications are being developed to give us more information and entertainment. This project is designed with a combination of two latest and most demanding technologies that are Smart phone and Embedded Systems
A Smart phone is a mobile phone built on a mobile operating system, with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than a feature phone The first smart phones combined the functions of a personal digital assistant (PDA) with a mobile phone. Later models added the functionality of portable media players, low-end compact cameras, pocket, and GPS navigation units to form one multi-use device. Many modern Smartphone’s also include high-resolution touch screens and web browsers that display standard web pages as well as mobile-optimized sites. High-speed data access is provided by Wi-Fi and Broadband.
With present phones like smart phones we can browse everything from mobile itself.
In this project we will create an application to monitor the patient’s health condition like monitoring temperature and heart beat from webpage. Whenever we open this application it gives the current status of patient’s health. At patient side we have Ethernet module, micro controller, temperature sensor and heart beat sensor. This micro controller will keep updating patient’s body temperature and heartbeat on webpage. We can check these value from anywhere on our Smart phones by opening this webpage from phone itself.
