Abstract

Body area network (BAN) is an emerging technology in computer world, and plays very vigorous role in a society, mainly in health services. BAN helps in monitoring vital signs of a patient and can monitor patientís history in routine life activities to provide them accurate treatment. Doctors can check the complete details of patients from remote location and can recommend a suitable medication. The main purpose of this technology is to reduce the load at hospitals and provide efficient healthcare facility remotely using medical implant communication system (MICS) and Wireless medical telemetry system (WMTS). To monitor the patients in their natural environments is not practical when devices or sensors are connected through a wire that is why we use Wireless body area network (WBAN) to carrying out daily activities through unobtrusive and contented way. This technology can provide very cheaper, easier and quick respondent history of patient.
