Abstract

Problem statement: Healthcare is recognized various leading edge technologies and new scientific discoveries to enable better cures for diseases and better means to enable early detection of most life threatening diseases. The modern health care focused for optimally reducing the healthcare costs. Approach: The modern healthcare system enables medical professionals to remotely perform real-time monitoring, early diagnosis and treatment for potential risky disease. A mobile patient monitoring system, which integrates current Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) technology and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) technology are proposed in the recent year. In addition to this, the medical diagnosis and patient consultations can be delivered via wire/wireless communication networks. Results: This study reviews on the recent research in the field of wireless body area networks and modern health-care systems. Conclusion: This study analyses the design, architecture and implementation of Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) based health care system.
