Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) were designed to collect and transfer vital physiological parameters within a short distance of the human body by employing low-power, light-weight, small-sized and smart implantable or wearable sensor devices. Lately, WBANs are expected to support various types of applications with data rates from a few Kbps upto 10 Mbps and satisfy the heterogeneous requirements of both medical and consumer electronics applications. Hence, novel communication protocols that… CONTINUE READING
