© ICST Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering 2016. Patients suffering from heart problems such as arrhythmia, failure and prone to heart attacks, need regularly monitoring of their vital signs. It is described in this article an inexpensive, free software based, easy-to use prototype of a telemetry system, applied for monitoring biomedical signals using a wifi module, a photoplethysmograph and an infrared temperature sensor; the measurements obtained by this sensors are transmitted on real time to an Android application and to an online platform that can be accessed anytime. The prototype also includes an alarm system that sends a message to the phone application, and by using social networks such as Twitter, timely notifies the treating doctor and respective relatives whenever a critical level on the patient’s body signals is detected.
