A continuous monitoring of physiological data is especially important for indi-viduals whose chronic condition includes the risk of sudden acute events. Phys-iological measurements fluctuate over the course of the day, so a once-daily read-ing might not provide the whole picture. Standard ambulatory systems for moni-toring, are not suitable for monitoring over long period of time. The new systems and techniques suitable for hospital environment are investigated over the past years. In this study, we present a wearable system which includes a Zephyr bio-module for measuring patient's vital parameters. Data is collected wirelessly and displayed on mobile device via software. In order to be used in hospitals, the de-veloped system was clinically tested. The data for heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR), obtained with the developed system were compared to the same pa-rameters obtained by the standard medical device, in order to compare their accu-racy. Preliminary results from these tests are shown in this paper.
