Role of Body Area Sensor Networks in Smart Health Care

Neelanjana Basu Roy and Debasis Das
Abstract—The term “computer” or “PC” has never yielded another term “personal”. It is just regarded as a machine with inputs from human beings giving required outputs. However the term or the budding field of Body Area Networks gives new meaning or leverage now to the term "personal" in PCs. In short, this wireless technology leverages wireless communications protocols allowing low-powered sensors to communicate with one another and transmit data to a local base station and to remote places like hospitals. This paper on Wireless Body Area Networks will present a detailed discussion on the various applications of WBANs in smart healthcare systems, its history of development, advantages, disadvantages and the future prospect and scenario of this system. We will also highlight project performed earlier that helped WBANs to provide long-term healthcare monitoring. Our main aim in this paper, is to understand one of the major applications of Body Area Sensor Networks, termed as “Amplifier Ear” which helps people suffering from auditory problems to function properly.

Index Terms—Amplifier ear, body area network (BAN), body sensor networks (BSNs),wireless sensor networks (WSNs).
