Medical MoteCare is a health monitoring system prototype suitable for monitoring the elderly and the infirm. The system utilizes a wireless sensor network of MicaZ motes equipped with pulse oximeter sensors and environmental sensors, namely temperature and light. The system is based on the adaptation of Three-Tier and SNMP Proxy Network Management Organizational Model. A key feature of the system is the use of two proprietary network management tools to monitor personal health parameters and provide timely alerts when thresholds are reached. © 2009 IEEE.
