Health Monitoring In Remote Areas Using WBAN
With the increasing success of Wireless Sensor Network(WSN) and RFID technologies using this theory
continues to set a milestone, but as far as the Medical Areas are concerned these technologies are still lacking in such
domains. This is the domain where the part of Body Area Network comes into play. WSN is one of the effective technology
which can be used in the advancement of medical fields and applications. This technology can be used vastly in the future
advancements of e-health and thus helping remote areas in an effective manner and can even track patient's condition from a
far distance. This leads to an independent living of a hearing or vision impaired person without even caretakers. With an
advantage comes a disadvantage, similarly is the case with the mentioned technology of Body Area Network. Due to this
emerging technology, the demand for hospitals , doctors and clinics are getting reduced.
Also there is a danger for leaking the Patient Information leading to manipulation of any personal information. Thus, keeping
all the constraints in mind we have designed this paper to make the Body Area Network effective ,compiling the
technologies and bringing it all over to remote controlled sensors as well as securing the data transmission and thus securing
the patient's information to a good extend.
