In this paper, we propose Least Total-Route- Temperature (LTRT), a thermal aware routing algorithm, to reduce temperature caused by biomedical sensors implanted in human bodies. In the proposed scheme, nodes' temperatures are converted into graph weights and minimum temperature routes are obtained. Simulations are conducted to show the advantages of the proposed scheme when comparing with three other related schemes.
