Networking issues in medical implant communications

  title={Networking issues in medical implant communications},
  author={Bin Zhen and Huan-Bang Li and Ryuji Kohno},
IEEE 802.15 working group established a new task group, body area network (TG-BAN), to develop short range wireless technology in and around human body recently. This paper investigates networking issues in implant communications at 2.4 GHz frequency band. The object is better understanding of medical implant networks and how and where to start TGBAN work. We applied IEEE 802.15.4b and 802.15.4a-chirp spread spectrum (CSS) for implant communications. We derived a path loss model in the layered… CONTINUE READING
