Body Area Networks (BANs) connect together nodes attached to a human body and transfer the data to an external infrastructure. The wireless communication channel and a variety of miniature sensor devices have lead to many useful applications of BANs, such as healthcare monitoring, military and emergency coordination, rescue services, sports, and entertainment. The Ultra Wide Band (UWB) communication model is widely used in wireless body area networks. UWB Radio Frequency (RF) technology
more &raquo; ... robust and energy efficient transmission of data and signals through wireless networks. This chapter surveys recent models, applications and research challenges for future generation UWB RF technology for BANs. The chapter also discusses the state-of-the art in the cloud-based support for data storage and analysis in mobile health monitoring. Security issues for BANs in general and mobile health monitoring are addressed as a key aspect of the recent developments in the domain.
