Abstract—Recent advances in micro electronics, physiological sensors, low-power integrated circuits
and wireless communication has allowed the realisation of Wireless Body Area Networks
(WBAN), which are used for health monitoring, athletic guidance, monitoring traffic, crops,
infrastructure etc. The body area networks (BAN) are low power, miniaturized, inexpensive,
large scale multifunctional network. It allows continuous health monitoring of a person with realtime
updates of medical records through the Internet. As a result, it decreases cost and regular
visits to the doctor and also saving the human life’s when unpredictable health condition occurs.
This paper review the key aspects of WBAN, its architecture, standard technologies, challenging
issues and applications in medical and non medical fields.
Index Terms—Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN), Zigbee, Bluetooth, Channel Models
