This study presents a healthcare monitoring system with wearable sensors. The sensors are very tiny devices which when attached to patient body eliminates the need for continuously monitoring by a doctor or nurse. The wearable sensor system is built in to a fabric belt which consists of various medical sensors that collects information about patients and conveys the status of patient through low energy wireless communication such as smart phones, PDA or palm device to their respective doctors. This study also presents the results of Wireless Sensor Mesh Network (WSMN) in terms of parameters such as delay, throughput when the number of doctors and patients are increased. Key Terms: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Wearable Sensor Systems (WSS), Personal Digital Assistance (PDA)
