The main idea of this work is to introduce a wireless telemedicine system developed to reduce hospital admission period and expenses. Through a radio frequency based acquisition system allied with internet connection, we present a mobile system capable of monitoring patients with chronic cardiac diseases at home. This approach also increases the patients comfort during the treatment period that occurs home based and also reduces hospital risks such as hospital infection. In addition, a signal processing algorithm was implemented in order to provide medical diagnosis informative help. As we intended to built a proof-of-concept system, only basic laboratory trials were implemented on adults from 23 to 80 years old.
