Wearable medical technology is becoming increasingly popular. Such devices have the potential to vastly improve the effectiveness, safety and economy of monitoring vital signs including temperature by both patients and clinicians. The purpose of this paper is to present design and implementation of a reliable, low cost and non-intrusive system that is to monitor a child’s body temperature using high precision temperature sensor and alarm his/her parents or guardian on their mobile phones as well as on a webpage which can be accessed via internet connection so as to avoid convulsions brought on by a significant rise in body temperature.
