This paper presents recent improvement of a Wi-Fi based vital signs monitor used for in-hospital monitoring in medium-risk settings. Valuable insight into design strengths and weaknesses has been gained and device improvements have been confirmed with real-world use. Integration with intuitive central station software is considered with respect to balancing functionality and performance. Practical use of the early warning system in challenging clinical environments has enabled further understanding of the potential impact of the system. A tool to provide a convenient method of tracking patient condition and alerting on deterioration is offered.
