Monitoring of triage parameters of a human being is very vital in healthcare; this research came up with a new innovative device which is suitable for measuring the triage parameters of both inpatients and outpatients. A device was developed which can be used in taking triage parameters of patients in real time remotely. With this developed device, patients triage parameters can be measured from various home, offices etc and such data will be transmitted wirelessly in real time to their care giver with the aid of the developed low-cost device. The research explores wireless sensor network technology in caring out the development of the device and a software layer of the work explores C- language. The device developed was tested, the analysis was done on the data gathered from the values of the triage parameters obtained (Temperature, pulse rate, and blood pressure).
