A Review on Wireless Body Area Network for Health Monitoring

Authors(5) :-Mr.Khwaja Ramizuddin, Ashish Hasoriya, Aniket Puanikar, Desmond Michael, Siddharth Dhone

The Recent developments and technological advancements in wireless communication, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology and integrated circuits has enabled low-power, intelligent, miniaturized, invasive/non-invasive micro and nanotechnology sensor nodes strategically positioned in or around the human body to be used in diverse applications, such as personal health monitoring. Body area network (BAN) is the most advanced technology in wireless communications and electronics. The recent BAN’s applications prove how this becoming more demanding to each one. Some of these applications are medical applications, it is possible to implant, or wear, tiny health monitoring sensor nodes on the body so that the fundamental body parameters and the movements of the patient can be recorded and communicated to the medical amenities for further actions such as processing and diagnosis as well as it is also used in non-medical application areas such as entertainment, military. Apart from that BAN have specific hardware and network necessities with low power consumption.
