Wireless sensors may aid detection of clinical deteriorations in hospital patients. Whilst acknowledging the challenges associated with integration into clinical practice, potential routes for translating this technology into changed patient outcomes are discussed. Results from a clinical trial investigating the feasibility and efficacy of continuous inpatient monitoring using wireless sensors will be presented.
