Personal telehealth plays a crucial role in addressing global challenges of aging population and rising cost for health care. Tiny and wirelessly connected medical sensors, for example embedded in clothes or on the body, will be an integrated part of lifestyle, and will allow hospitals to remotely diagnose patients in their home. In this thesis, a wireless bio-sensing with smart phone based monitoring system is proposed to provide a home based telehealth care for continuous monitoring. The system consists of two main parts: a wireless sensor and a health application on the smart phone. This thesis is to design the first part of the system - a wireless temperature and electrocardiography (ECG) sensor. The sensor integrates ECG front-end analog block, a micro-controller and a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) connectivity IC on a single board. To achieve the miniaturization of the sensor and users’ comfort in mind, the sensor is designed as a miniaturized hybrid system utilizing flexible batteries and printed electrodes. This can efficiently detect ECG signals and transfer them to a smart phone through BLE link.
