Abstract: The improvements in the wireless networking technologies and the integrated electronic circuits have allowed the advancement in the Wireless Body Area Network. WBAN offers many applications in remote health monitoring and medicine. IEEE 802.15.4j and IEEE 802.15.6 are standards for the medical WBAN. It allows the integration of intelligent and miniaturized sensor nodes in or on a human body to monitor the human body functions. It has great potential to make a huge transformation in the future of medical industry. The WBAN concept provides plentiful new innovative ideas to enhance the health care systems. The paper presents a wireless monitoring system for patients who need continuous monitoring, using WBAN concept. This wireless monitoring system contains sensor network and remote monitoring application. It contributes to collection of the vital information of the patients such as temperature, pulse rate, ECG (electrocardiogram), oxygen saturation and blood pressure. Moreover, the system also provides management of information collected from the sensors, alert the administration in severe condition of the patients. The design and implementation of system are discussed in this paper.
