Paper Abstract

This paper describes the conception of The Module for Transmission of Biomedical Data (MTBD). The prototype will acquire and process human vital signs and transmit collected information to a remote telemedicine centre for further analysis, taking advantage of GSM cellular infrastructure. The intention of MTBD prototype is providing care at the point and time of need without limiting of users' mobility. This should enhance the quality of life of patients. The article presents the conception of hardware platform designed for acquiring, processing and transmitting biomedical parameters using SMS, CSD, HSCD, GPRS services, provided by the GSM operators. Detailed analysis of prototype requirements is presented, taking into consideration GSM security aspects. The paper describes the main idea of MTBD in telemedicine system and basic conception of hardware and software solutions used in prototype device.
