Obtainable remote nursing systems have some identified glitches including inept data extraction and dynamic tuning of data to preserve the quality of data transmission exclusively for the aged. This paper presents an alternative designed architecture of a microcontroller based heartbeat and body temperature monitoring system using fingertip and temperature sensor as a solution to some of the identified challenges of existing technology that uses network between the patient and doctor to enable remote monitoring of aged patient for medical attention. Appraisal of the device on real signals shows accuracy in heartbeat measurement, even under intense physical activity for the aged.
