Most of the existing systems require wiring that restrains the natural movement. To overcome this limitation, a wearable wireless sensor network using accelerometers have been developed in this project. In this paper, a wearable wireless sensor system is proposed to overcome this limitation. The wireless feature enables the unrestrained motion of the human body as opposed to a wired monitoring device and makes the system truly portable. This will also allow the system to be deployed in a cluttered home environment. The small form factor and lightweight feature of the sensor nodes also allow easy attachment to the limbs. This technology also used in sports technology, in this field the authors know about the players' behavior.
