Abstract: This paper validates a medical videoconferencing system previously developed, called MedLAN. Besides the positive comments that medical consultants might have regarding a wireless videoconferencing system designed for use inside the A&E wards, a methodically and exhaustive clinical testing of such a system must take place before adopting such technology in a wider scale. Clinical testing using a wide number of patients, modalities and a number of medical consultants proved that the suggested system could operate effectively under most conditions and it would be beneficiary to the patients. After this clinical evaluation, a number of hospitals showed interest on installing such a system in their A&E wards.
