The IEEE 1073 Standard seeks to regulate the processes of communication between medical devices and external computer systems. Such devices have reduced processing capacity, as is the case of patient care units used in ambulatory state or at home. This paper shows the IEEE 1073 standard concepts application in a medical device that monitors positions and detects abrupt falls of a person. The parameters are applied in all possible extensions within a communication environment between a cell phone that receives posture and falls signals from the medical device and transmits these to a remote web server in which the information is displayed graphically for analysis by multiple users (doctor, nurse , patient). The implementation shows that the rule is easily applied in the communication process for low-capacity devices (Cell phones that support J2ME or Android java applications) that can not support other standards such as DICOM or HL7 . However, some of its concepts are too complex to be included in simple items such as a microcontroller
