Remote health monitoring system is used to collect and transfer biosignal data from the patient to healthcare center. In this work, a method using the combination of ZigBee and GPRS is presented. These two wireless technologies are integrated to support continuous biosignal monitoring in presence of patient mobility. The principle of remote data transmission through GPRS and short range data transmission through ZigBee is introduced. All data output from medical devices are transferred within a
